Back in 2015, there was a call out from the Bodmin Heritage Day committee for some help with the revival of The Children's Dance. A total of 26 children took part in 2016. Around 100 children joined in in 2017 . . . and for 2018, we have high hopes of finally persuading the schools in Bodmin and the surrounding area to join their community for this extraordinarily special day . . .

It's taken about five years to finally get Cornish music and dancing workshops to Bude, after launching 'Arta in The Globe', a follow on project to 'Lev Krev Kernow' (Vocal Force Cornwall), and the predecessor for the Liskeard-based 'Vital Spark Festival of Art' project, based on a single Cornish dance.
