Process to develop professional standards and framework
In 2005, People Dancing, on behalf of its members, took the lead on the process of research and development to provide the community dance profession with a strategy to address its current and future development needs. It did this by articulating professional standards, supporting professional development and validating professional status in community dance.
The process began with extensive consultation with individuals and organisations across the dance and arts sectors. This took the form of face to face meetings and an online survey.
Making a Move was the resulting strategy, launched in 2006 and completed in 2008. After 2008, People Dancing joined with the Dance Training and Accreditation Partnership to realise the strategy in a collective way.
