Hi BDC...fully behind your mission to create community wellbeing through creativity and freedom of expression. I speak as the father of one of your students and a member of Shallal a Cornish Arts Charity who share your vision and want to share the space on Chapel Street when you are the owners...May all go well 💃👩‍🦽🕺💚


Helen Thirlby 26th October 2020

Thank you for all you’ve done. X x x x

Frances Robinson 26th October 2020

So many talented kids have walked through those doors over the years...Fiona and the team put their hearts and souls into every venture whether it be competing,performing or charity events and the love and passion for dance shines through every time those kids step onto a stage or dance floor..It would be a crying shame if it was all taken from them,and in these uncertain times the young ones are missing out on so many of the fun things in life,please don,t let them lose their dancing as well..Let’s keep BDC up and running for another 20 years.

Jessica Pickles 26th October 2020

It’s hard to express just how valuable and important the Big Dance Company is to the youngsters of Penzance. It offers so much, and contributes to health, opportunities, friendships and so much more.

Steve and Catherina Oxford Pope Good luck on your fund raising; your presence is important to Penzance as a city and for all the people living in it. More than ever in this time of lockdown and afterwards, the activities you offer to the community are essential in all aspects- health, social, and community awareness- especially for our young people. Thank you for everything you do!

Andrea Britton Will do all I can to help spread the word. GOOD LUCK!16/11/2020 at 13:38
