  • Be part of a positive change in the dance industry
    Safeguarding training is a compulsory part of dance teaching, but not everyone is up to date, and lots of people don't even know about it! We are calling for safeguarding training to be a part of dance teacher training - an essential criteria that must be met before qualifications are given out. Let's create a culture where we celebrate our training and implement best practice within our schools.

  • Save money
    For just £100pa, group membership is an absolute steal compared to the price of booking all the training sessions separately and paying for one-to-one consultancy with Vicky. In 2020 we provided over £400 worth of content to our group members and we have even more planned for 2021!

The group has been an invaluable tool for me this year. Through the rollercoaster of 2020 it has helped me to pin down my policies and it’s really handy to be able to check back on the group contents at any time. Whether you’re new to dance teaching or you’ve been at it for years, Vicky has information that you’ve likely never heard before, always delivered in a simple and interesting way.
