Antonia Grove is the co-founder of Probe and is an award winning dancer and choreographer. She says: "I am so excited about being made an Associate Artist. It has come at exactly the right time in my career, and will enable me to realise the ideas and artistic vision I have for Probe through supporting me as the artist at the heart of that. I can't wait to start working with Chris Fogg and the team at South East Dance. I feel extremely privileged and very grateful to be given this opportunity".
Ben Duke is the co-founder of Lost Dog, whose most recent work, It Needs Horses, won the Place Prize final 2011.

It is an amazing opportunity for me to develop my work and to enable me to turn Lost Dog into a company with a national and international presence but based here, in my home, in the South East".
Artist Fellowship Scheme 2012-13
Rosemary Lee was the first recipient of the South East Dance Fellowship (2012-13). The scheme allowed her time and opportunity to reflect on her creative practice and explore new ways of working over the next phase of her career. Rosemary said: "I am thrilled and delighted with this opportunity and I should like to use my fellowship to explore the relationship between art and ways of behaving within communities with a view towards creating cultures of kindness".
