A membership organisation for all dancers, Dance UK is the national voice for the dance profession. It aims to improve the conditions in which dance is created, performed and experienced.

This week it's all about...


Dance UK with its partners Youth Dance England, National Dance Teachers Association and Association of Dance of the African Diaspora are recruiting for three new exciting roles. Project Manager: Organisational Change, Marketing and Communications Manager (DUK & YDE), Digital Marketing and Membership Officer (DUK & YDE). Full information including job profiles and application forms can be found here.


Dance UK is about to launch an exciting new membership package. It includes everything normally included in Dance UK membership plus two additional elements specifically designed to help dancers maintain health, fitness and optimum performance.

Dance science at Trinity Laban Conservaotire of Music and Dance

The package has been designed to complement the existing specialist healthcare available at National Institute of Dance Medicine and Science (NIDMS) NHS clinics and will be invaluable for dance artists working independently or without comprehensive in-house health provision. Any individual dancer, teacher or choreographer can take out the package; companies and schools may also wish to add it to their existing offering for dancers.

In the meantime...
