Dance in Devon extends a warm welcome to dance teachers both in formal education and in private dance schools.
In your dance school – we can help to promote and publicise your classes through our Directory map, we get lots of enquiries.
In school – we can offer advice and support for any dance projects or activities you want to run and help you find the very best match with a local professional dance practitioner to meet your requirements.
Benefit from case studies, on-line resources, training and continuing professional development.
We often organise free or subsidised activities and can invite you to get involved with national dance initiatives, like Big Dance, which link your pupils with the wider dance world and offer students and teachers the chance to discover different dance styles and make new dance connections.
Dance in Devon YOUTH offers the opportunity to associate your youth dance group to the pan-Devon youth dance network and take part in U.Dance4Devon showcase events and one-off specials such as Young Choreographer’s development intensives with visiting artists like Russell Maliphant & Kevin Finnan.
