Passport to practice handbook


An induction to professional practice in community dance
by Diane Amans

This is your essential practical guide to starting out in your professional practice and a useful resource for more experienced practitioners for brushing up on the knowledge and skills required to be an effective dance practitioner working in community settings and contexts.

Diane Amans is a leading practitioner in community dance and delivered our first ever 'Induction to Professional Practice' course at our Summer School. This book covers the key aspects that the induction course explores and acts as a resource to which you can continue to refer throughout your future dance work. The book also features an contribution from FCD's very own Development Director, Chris Stenton, entitled 'Business survival skills'.

The content of this book includes:
  • What is community dance?
  • Self-defined leadership
  • Duty of care
  • Inclusive practice
  • Business survival skills
  • Negotiating collaborations with your local dance agency
  • Evaluating your impact
  • Action planning
