Public liability insurance for dance teachers

Public Liability Insurance for Dance Teachers

One Dance UK individual members can benefit from lower premiums through the improved ‘First Step’ insurance scheme, only available to members of One Dance UK and Dance Resource Base Northern Ireland. Unlike some forms of insurance on the market, this package is flexible to teachers who also do pilates and drama activity, providing that it is not the core of your teaching activity.

One Dance UK is pleased to announce a significant number of enhancements to the scope of the insurance provided, as well as reducing the premium, saving One Dance UK members money.

Victoria Trotter, One Dance UK member and teacher says:

‘Thumbs up to One Dance UK and Gordon & Co for the changes to the First Step insurance policy, cheaper premium and personal accident benefits!’
