Step into Dance
The Jack Petchey Foundation works in partnership with the Royal Academy of Dance to deliver this high-energy dance programme across London and Essex.
Step into Dance enables young people to develop their passion, skills, and understanding of dance through a diverse and inclusive programme of weekly classes, workshops and performance opportunities.
Working with mainstream schools, SEN schools and youth groups/organisations across London and Essex, Step into Dance aims to reach students who might not otherwise get the chance to connect with dance.
Delivered by a team of professional dancers and dance practitioners, the programme supports young people’s physical and mental wellbeing whilst expanding their knowledge of dance. Enrichment opportunities, weekend dance company (SYNC), workshops and performance events are also offered. Students who are curious to learn more about the dance industry have the chance to become a Step into Dance Leader where they would get the opportunity to assist their Step into Dance Practitioner as part of their sessions and act as an advocate for Step into Dance.
