The Dancers Career Development is a fantastic organisation that is seemingly little known within the commercial world. For any of you that are contemplating life after a successful dance career, please get in touch with them. They have helped us and they will help you!
“Dancers’ Career Development (DCD) has been supporting professional dance for 40 years. It exists to help dancers make the often difficult transition from professional dancing to a new career by giving them the confidence and skills to keep working beyond dance. It offers a holistic and comprehensive range of specialist and confidential career support and retraining services in the UK.
DCD is the only organisation of its kind in the UK and is a world leader in dancer transition. Its mission is to empower all dancers in all dance forms, so that in overcoming any insecurities arising at the point they cease to perform, they are able to develop the remaining part of their career, within or outside the dance profession, by building on their distinctive strengths and transferable skills.”
