Every year we recruit 20 Dance Ambassadors aged 15-25 who act as both ambassadors for dance in general and where possible assist with the delivery of our activities. If you would like to learn more about the experience of being a Dance Ambassador, read our interview with 2017/2018 Dance Ambassador Vicki Horan or see below for more information on the programme.
Who is a Dance Ambassador and what do they do?
Dance Ambassadors are proactive and confident young people from across the UK. They learn about the work of One Dance UK and Dance Consortium and advocate for the organisation and its activities across their networks, with decision makers and stakeholders in their location and at events they are invited to. They also help at dance events (e.g. conferences, regional platforms) and when possible provide support in the office at key times in the year.
Benefits for the Dance Ambassadors:
- An opportunity to work with a high profile dance organisation, with a national reach.
- Involvement will improve future career prospects, gaining new skills and knowledge.
- Develop networks through having access to a variety of networking opportunities that they would not have access otherwise.
