Introducing Our Ambassadors!



The Devon Dance Compass Project is founded on the collective and individual strength of our four area dance ambassadors.
Whilst each from four uniquely diverse backgrounds, all four share the same passion for dance and the county of Devon.
Here are the fantastically energetic, creative and passionate people whose insights, observations and unique personal stories will be the source of much of our dedicated Compass Project content!
