Dance is not only an important art form, but a powerful force for achieving a healthier lifestyle with proven success in tackling particular challenges including obesity, Parkinson’s Disease, cancer and loneliness.
The Dance Manifesto calls on politicians to:
- Ensure dance is an integral part of every young person’s education, with the same status as music, maths and English
- Recognise and act to harness the proven health and wellbeing benefits of dance to communities
- Champion dance as a great UK art form

Dance Manifesto 2015
The Dance Manifesto Minibook 2015 is meant to introduce politicians who don’t know anything about dance to some of the many benefits of participating in and watching dance.
