The Future: New Ideas, New Inspirations
Dance UK’s Industry-Wide Conference
Thursday 9 – Sunday 12 April, London
Join us for the UK’s first-ever industry-wide conference for dance, taking place Thursday 9 to Sunday 12 April in venues across London.
This is the biggest conference Dance UK has organised and, although we are a charity and need to cover the cost of the conference from ticket sales, we believe it is more important for teachers, lecturers and students of dance to have the opportunity to attend such a diverse conference. Dance UK have therefore set aside 25 discounted tickets for attendees of Dance HE’s, Resilience: Articulating Dance ‘Knowledges’ in the C21st at £120 for a full conference pass or £40 for a day pass, a discount of over 60%. These tickets will be sold on a first-come-first-serve basis so call us now to book your place! Please do not let finance be a barrier, we are offering payments by instalment or are able to offer an interest-free ticket loan and sponsored ticket subsidies on a case-by-case basis. Call the Dance UK team on 0207 713 0730 in confidence and we’ll do what we can to help.
This is the first time the whole the industry has been brought together for one event and the four days will feature a host of exciting speakers including Ashley Banjo, leader of Diversity; Peter Bazalgette, Chair of Arts Council England; Dame Gillian Lynne DBE; Wayne McGregor, CBE and Artistic Director of Random Dance and Alistair Spalding, Chief Executive and Chair of Sadler’s Wells. The conference schedule contains talks and workshops to appeal to dancers, choreographers, teachers, dance company managers, clinicians and directors alike; covering subjects from hypermobility, demands of choreography and psychology, to funding for dance, the future of dance education and the development of dance training for young people.

Saturday’s programme will include numerous health talks and workshops including how to alter class for the injured dancer and the hypermobile student in class as well as sessions organised by the National Dance Network on Ballet, South Asian Dance and Ballroom. Sunday’s programme will offer an opportunity to discuss dance training and focus on the need of the profession and young people as they prepare to be the future of dance.
Tickets can be purchased via our website or by calling the Dance UK office on 020 7713 0730.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
