Diversity and Inclusion Hub

We aim to have an inclusive community that values merit, openness, fairness and transparency. Read more about our plans to drive positive change in dance.

About the Hub

Our mission is to educate the public in the art of dancing in all its forms, to be a truly inclusive Society for all and encourage diversity in our dance community and beyond. We will work towards this vision through embedding diversity and inclusion into all that we do.

Our Society Think Tanks

We meet regularly with three focus groups which include a range of external experts, committee members and Society staff to discuss the current barriers to dance and finding tangible solutions to addressing them. Our Think Tanks focus on Gender and LGBTQIA+, Racial Diversity and Disability Inclusion.


Browse free resources including guidance, videos and downloads that help to break down barriers, broaden access to dance and make our work as dance teachers more inclusive.
