Youth Dance Forums

A Youth Dance Forum gives you a chance to have your voice in the dance world. You can help to build links across the dance community, creating dialogue and action around new ideas and needs of the local area.


The dance world is always changing and the Forums help to support young people across the entire dance sector in each area to become better connected with the opportunities available to them. You can help to ensure that the young people in your area get the best access to dance, and be involved in building a strong dance network across your area.
