Pavilion Dance South West
Who we are and what we do in a single page:
Vision: We champion a fresh approach to dance by dissolving boundaries to create and present incredible experiences for audiences and participants. We support and develop those who already love dance and inspire those who have yet to discover it.
Mission: We celebrate and encourage dance nationally, building strong local and regional partnerships to connect it to a diverse and broad public, through excellent performance and participation opportunities.
Values: Generous, Passionate, Inspiring, Inclusive, Fresh
 To be a distinctive national voice, championing the development of Dance as an art form, and supporting it to respond to its challenges and to its audience
 To facilitate a robust and diverse regional network, supporting local dance activity and joining up organisations and individuals to create a stronger ecology1
 To contribute our expertise generously in transforming the cultural offer in Bournemouth and working with others to develop an exciting and distinctive creative identity for the town
 To develop and diversify audiences, income streams and partnerships to ensure a sustainable future for Pavilion Dance South West as a cultural flagship locally, regionally and nationally
 To encourage dialogue and understanding between all parts of the ecology, role modelling genuine partnership working, to develop outcomes that connect, engage and inspire
 To champion the instrumental2 value of dance across contemporary society
 Bounce: To inspire and thrill children and young people through dance
 Grow: To nurture and support the dance workforce to respond creatively to audiences and markets for their work
 Shift: To develop and re model current ideas for commissioning, producing and distributing dance
 Share: To champion and support an audience’s right to feel connected and engaged with dance
 Breathe: To advocate for and embed dance in society’s health and well being provision 1 Ecology: The relationship and interaction of artists and their creative ideas and products with the wider environment (audiences, local authorities, venues, education establishments, health trusts for example).
2 Instrumental: The demonstrable value of something beyond its intrinsic worth. So, for example, with dance that would include, for example, the physical and mental health benefits for older people or obese youngsters, keeping them from becoming a drain on the health service or the ability of dance to engage young people who may otherwise lack a sense of direction or self worth, thus contributing to educational attainment and reduced anti social behaviour. It may also include contributing to the creation of a “sense of place” and its desirability as a place to live, work and visit.
