Chief Executive 

The UK’s new Industry lead body for Dance

(formed from the merger in April 2016 of
the Association of Dance of the African Diaspora, Dance UK, National Dance Teachers Association and Youth Dance England)

This is an exceptional opportunity to shape a new high profile organisation and to drive its work forward. The Company will be launched in April 2016 as a membership organisation which will support, develop, promote and advocate for all sectors of dance in the UK.  The merger will create synergies and open new opportunities to be exploited. One such opportunity will be to relocate from London to the Midlands or North of England and the appointee will play a key role in bringing this about.
