Dance Consortium supports creative careers through its joint initiative with One Dance UK, the industry body for dance. Dance Ambassadors / Future Leaders aims to fire curiosity about careers in theatre by connecting aspiring dancers and arts leaders with theatre staff at Dance Consortium’s 20 UK venues.

Dance Ambassadors/Future Leaders

Each year 20 young people aged 18-25 take part in careers workshops, speed networking with industry staff and mentoring to learn about jobs in the arts. In the last two years, Future Leaders visited theatres in Birmingham, Bradford, Edinburgh, Nottingham and Salford to learn about creative careers in producing, marketing, fundraising and learning and practical roles including teaching and performing.
