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.


In December 2018, we recruited a new group of Ambassadors to work with us on a series of events in 2018-19, attend training and workshops and work towards either a Bronze or Silver Arts Award qualification.

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

 

Previous Ambassadors have had practical workshops with Tavaziva dance company, received training from the Speaker’s Trust and hosted Spring Sharings. 

 

Ambassadors were given the opportunity to work towards a Bronze Arts Award qualification.
