Dance enables you to develop socially whilst promoting creativity, fitness and well-being.
As you become a performer, you'll also develop your confidence, self-esteem and team working skills.
Dance can involve hours of practice to develop the physical and technical skills to learn and perform a piece. This positive and determined mind set will be useful in all jobs!
Dancers are creative, have confidence in performing in front of an audience and working with others.
Many dancers go into the performing arts, media, health and well-being such as yoga or Pilates teaching or other 'people jobs' such as tourism.
