New national dance industry body launched and name announced – One Dance UK

On Monday 7 December 2015, 450 dance professionals packed the Royal Society of Medicine in London – with hundreds more watching online – as a new industry body for the dance sector was launched and its new name and brand – One Dance UK – was unveiled.

The new charity has been created from a bold merger between four leading specialist dance organisations: Association of Dance of the African Diaspora, Dance UK, National Dance Teachers Association and Youth Dance England.
