OUR UNIQUE
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

FOR DANCING PARENTS

KEEP YOUR DANCE CAREER

ON TRACK

 

 

Dance Mama Live! is an online monthly programme of inspirational, informative and creative activity designed specifically to empower parents working in dance. 

 

Our 2022/23 Season, Back On The Road (supported by Arts Council England) began Sunday 20 November and runs monthly until July 2023, continuing our mission of getting you racing up the road of your career in dance as a parent. 

 

  This time we're bringing back in-person sessions which we have all craved over the pandemic years, as well as delivering the nation’s dancing parents the very best content they deserve online and as replays in this digestible programme made for busy working parents.

 

To truly get you out and about, virtually and in person, each monthly session will be broadcasting from one of Dance Mama's national partners; One Dance UK, Sadler’s Wells, DanceXchange, Fabric, Dance City, East London Dance, Company Chameleon, CScape, Swindon Dance and Clearcut.
