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...

the Department for Education and Ofqual are in the final stages of their consultations about new GCSEs and A/AS Levels for first teaching from September 2016. Dance is one of the subjects currently being reviewed and, as with all other subjects, changes to both the content and the assessments/examinations are being proposed. 

It is crucial that as many responses as possible are submitted for the Ofqual consultation before it closes on 22 September. 

You can find more information including guidance to submit your own response here.

In the meantime...
