It is with great sadness to inform you that Colin Bourne Collins, Trustee of Tavaziva died on 19th March 2021.

The suddenness of this lost came as a great shock and we have lost such a kind and considerate soul who was also a passionate advocate and valued and trusted Director of the Company since 2016. Colin was Head of Dance Programmes and Programme Leader of the BA in Contemporary Dance programme at Trinity Laban. His┬ávast experience & knowledge of the Dance Industry, Arts Education and of the training and nurturing of tomorrow’s dancers were an invaluable support in the development of Tavaziva.

Our feelings go out to his family and to everyone that knew him in various ways. We shall miss him very much.

“Colin was a completely committed Board member. His calm, positive and constructive clear thought process leading to sound advice were very much appreciated by myself as well as by fellow Trustees. Colin will be missed by everyone at Tavaziva as I am sure he will be by all whose lives he touched.”
