‘HeatherWalrondCompany’ is a British professional dance company based in Devon.
It is supported by Arts Council England and lead by Choreographer & Artistic Director Heather Richmond.
The Company took off the ground in May 2015, after Heather successfully received funding for a new piece of work ‘The Rising’, through Grants for the Arts, Arts Council England.
It was set up as a base for Heather to explore her ideas, share and inspire others and connect people from all over the world through dance. She states she doesn’t just make dance for the sake of it, but aims to make work that engages and moves audiences of all ages and cultures.
The company’s main interest is in the collaboration between different cultures from around the world. They are passionate about connecting with communities who don’t usually engage with the arts, by using live music and dance to bring the performance’s and workshops alive.
‘Art is the means by which we communicate what it feels like to be alive’
