Become a dance leader

Body Politic, Dancin’ Oxford and Pegasus Theatre are delivering a Dance Leadership (DL1) Programme in Spring 2022.

The Leadership programme is a nationally recognised qualification, which will enable dancers to plan and deliver enjoyable dance sessions within their local communities.

Dance leaders will have the opportunity to participate in four days of dance training with Body Politic dance artists, as well as develop leadership skills to lead and deliver dance sessions.

Dance leaders who complete the full week’s training and submit a finished portfolio will receive a qualification through Sports Leaders UK.

Dance leaders will be guided through planning and delivering inclusive classes, promoting a healthy lifestyle, mental health awareness, and the foundations of creating choreography and movement.

Dance leaders will showcase their new skills and choreography in a small sharing at the end of the week.
