A Message from Dance UK – Launch Birmingham


Next month both Dance UK and the National Dance Teachers Association have events coming up in Birmingham.

Dance UK’s Launch will be taking place at Elmhurst School for Dance on Thursday 6 November.
Launch  —- is the professional development and network day for students and recent graduates.

Launch, the professional development and networking day designed especially to help dance students and recent graduates starting out in their careers, will come to Birmingham this year on 6 November. It is a fantastic opportunity for students to network with each other and start preparing for the next steps in their career once they have completed their education and training. The packed day provides seminars and hands-on practical advice from a mixture of emerging and established dance professionals, who have all had successful careers both as dancers and in the other diverse roles the dance industry offers. Launch gives young dance professionals the relevant information and tools to choose and successfully pursue specific roles in the sector, including teacher, manager, dancer, choreographer and everything in between.

Tickets for the day are normally priced at £30, however we are currently offering a group deal if you did wish to sign up a group (at least 10) of your students to attend. The deal would be £25 per student including Dance UK membership for every student for the year as well as a free Dance UK resource, Dance Teaching Essentials. If you would like to discuss this, please contact my colleague Alice Firth, alice@danceuk.org

Both events are great professional development opportunities and are of very good value too, so it would be great to get the word out there about them.
