Working on behalf of all those working and taking part in dance in the UK.


One Dance UK advocates on behalf of the dance sector to remove barriers and promote the national profile and diversity of dance for everyone in the UK. We are also the Subject Association for Dance in schools. One Dance UK is working to lead the way to a stronger, more vibrant and diverse dance sector.


Talking to pros who really understand the dance world has become so rare these days, and it felt a bit like coming home. Thank you for the powerhouse that is One Dance UK.
