Dance Apprentice Artist Scheme
Are you studying dance and movement or have a passion for dance and working with people? Déda have a great opportunity for you.

Déda’s Apprentice Dance Artist scheme will give you the opportunity to work alongside highly skilled and experience dance practitioners and to develop your knowledge and understanding of delivering and facilitating dance. The academy programme starts at 18months up to 19 years old and includes a range of different styles of dance. There will also be the opportunity to work in the community and schools with a variety of people and settings. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to help assist in the running of these classes and also have the opportunity to be mentored and supervised to deliver and lead.
