Step into Dance Ambassadors
The Step into Dance Ambassador scheme provides talented and enthusiastic young people with the opportunity to learn new skills that will equip them to support a range of events, projects and performances throughout the academic year.
We have recruited 32 Ambassadors to work with us on a series of events in 2018-19, attend training and workshops and work towards Arts Award qualifications.

Previous Ambassador Schemes:
In 2017-18, we recruited and worked with 24 young people who attended four training days at the Royal Academy of Dance with in-house and guest workshop leaders. The Ambassadors provided events support across the Step into Dance calendar including Spring Sharings and Step Live: Copy and Paste.
Ambassadors were given the opportunity to work towards a Bronze Arts Award qualification.
