Here are a selection of lovely comments from some of the amazing people I’ve had the pleasure to work with:
“Jane Ralls has a friendly but highly professional approach, displays attention to detail and has excellent guiding & supporting skills, a wealth of knowledge & experience and a high level of transferable skills. This short contract has been the best experience I have had working on developing FRONTLINEdance and I’m delighted at what has been achieved within the ten allocated days. Personally, I had the opportunity to revisit why I do what I do, realise exactly what artistic direction I want to take the company and be energised with challenging but realistic goals. My attitude to both the business and artistic side of the company has been transformed and I now have greater confidence, ambition and new & effective methods of working. I feel better equipped to face the challenges ahead. FRONTLINEdance has now got a comprehensive organisational plan, contacts spreadsheet and a research, foundation and trust spreadsheet. We have been provided with clear guidance of where and how our organisation can develop”.
Rachael Lines, FRONTLINEdance’s Artistic Director & Project Manager.
“You’ve made a huge difference to lots of people during your years at dx – young people, professionals and the team members and colleagues you’ve nurtured and managed. Your genuine and deeply-felt commitment to equality of access and to creating high quality and meaningful opportunities for people to grow and develop have made a real and lasting impact. I’ll really miss working with you”.
