Become a dance leader


Body Politic, Dancin’ Oxford and City of Oxford College are running another Dance Leadership (DL1) Programme between 24th-28th August 2020.  The Leadership programme is a nationally recognised qualification, which will enable dancers to plan and deliver enjoyable dance sessions within their local communities. 

Dancers will have the opportunity to participate in a week’s intensive dance training with Body Politic’s Artistic Director, Emma-Jane Greig. Training will include fitness & toning, contemporary and hip hop dance.

Throughout the week, dancers will also develop leadership skills, improve self-confidence, lead and facilitate a dance session. Dancers who complete the full week’s training and submit a finished portfolio will receive a qualification through Sports Leaders UK.

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

 The cost of the training is £50. This includes the cost of the qualification and over 28hrs of professional dance training. 

**Body Politic offers subsidised spaces for young people who might need support in order to take part. Please email for more information.
