The Rebecca Skelton Fund for Dance, Research & Performance provides financial assistance towards the cost of postgraduate dance study in experiential/creative work to include dance improvisation and those training methods such as Skinner Releasing Technique, Alignment Therapy, Feldenkrais Technique, Alexander Technique and other body-mind practices that focus on an inner awareness and use the proprioceptive communication system or an inner sensory mode.
Rebecca Skelton who died on 13th April 2005, was an artist; dancer, choreographer; teacher and researcher at the University of Chichester. More than all of these however she was a most generous, caring and sensitive person with a quiet but determined energy, which was always positive and life-affirming, and a wonderful sense of humour. She had achieved so much in her relatively short life and clearly had so much more to give that her death is a tragic loss.
