Water Marks Rebecca SkeltonThe charity was set up 9 years ago by the Skelton family after Rebecca died of a brain tumour aged 36. She was an inspirational dance teacher, choreographer, and performer working tirelessly in the community and at Chichester Bishop Otter University to bring her passion for dance to everyone. Her work still goes on, carried forward by her students and colleagues who were so inspired by her.

Each year the charity makes several small awards to dancers dedicated to the advancement of dance research and performance through their training and work in the community.

We are very grateful to musicians and composers, Barry Mills, Guy Richardson, Caroline Collingridge, Julian Broughton, Lou Beckerman and Ross Bicknell, some of whom have written pieces specially for this event, and to Lauren Potter for her improvised dance piece.
