Safeguarding Excellence

Dance School Safeguarding Services was created to empower dance teachers by providing high quality safeguarding training tailored to those teaching in the performing arts industry. Our ambition is to make the performing arts world a safer place through education, support, and guidance for teachers.

We work with anyone in the performing arts industry including dance and drama teachers, acrobatics coaches, freelance teachers, private dance schools and colleges, studio owners and dance associations.

Good safeguarding practice is the cornerstone of building a thriving, healthy, confident school where everyone is able to reach their full potential.

At Dance School Safeguarding Services we provide high quality safeguarding training tailored to those teaching in the performing arts industry.


Our Owner and Director is Victoria. For the last decade she has worked as a Specialist Safeguarding Trainer for her local authority and on behalf of her local safeguarding children board.


She has trained teachers, social workers, police officers, early years practitioners, charity and voluntary sector workers, care home staff and health professionals in safeguarding.


Vicky is also a dance school owner and qualified dance teacher who is keen to support her fellow teachers by providing the high level of training and consultancy our role requires.

Victoria is the Consultant Safeguarding Officer for the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) and the British Ballet Organisation (BBO).
