“I am thrilled to become a patron of Project Dance and encourage the company, as it continues to flourish and thrive. The company ethos resonates with my enthusiasm for fostering creativity and providing opportunities for the next generation of dancers to shine brightly. It’s a privilege to support their creative journey.

It’s fabulous to witness a young company of dancers connecting and growing under the exceptional leadership of James, who inspires and instils a sense of purpose and passion in the company.
