Represent Step into Dance!
The Step into Dance Ambassador scheme is an exciting opportunity for students to gain an insight into the world of professional dance and contribute to the development and delivery of the Step into Dance programme.
The scheme offers a breadth of experiences that enable selected young people to build both skills and experience of dance as critics, photographers, presenters and many more.
Ambassadors will engage in a series of training sessions, workshops and opportunities to represent the Step into Dance programme at different events across the year with the possibility of further opportunities as an Ambassador for a second year.
Who we’re looking for?

In 2017, we launched our first ever Ambassador programme to help raise the profile of our programme and to develop essential skills and experience in young people.
In 2018, we will build on this by working closely with a new batch of Ambassadors to nurture their creative talent and passion as young thinking dancers.
