NDTA seeking Chief Executive for New Industry Lead Body for Dance

5th November 2015

Chief Executive

The UK’s new Industry lead body for Dance
(formed from the merger in April 2016 of the Association of Dance of the African Diaspora,
Dance UK, National Dance Teachers Association and Youth Dance England)

Closing Date: 10th December 2015, 9am

This is an exceptional opportunity to shape a new high profile organisation and to drive its work forward. The Company will be launched in April 2016 as a membership organisation which will support, develop, promote and advocate for all sectors of dance in the UK.  The merger will create synergies and open new opportunities to be exploited. One such opportunity will be to relocate from London to the Midlands or North of England and the appointee will play a key role in bringing this about.


Our ideal candidate is a strong confident individual, a great communicator, with a history of success in organisational leadership in the UK and perhaps some international exposure. You will have a keen interest in diverse forms of dance and an ability to work with Industry colleagues to shape the vision of the new organisation and to make that vision a reality. Your move to this role will be career defining and will give you the chance to practise your proven skills on a much bigger stage.


This is a re-advertisement.  The post has been reviewed and is now being offered at a new increased salary to better reflect the scope and responsibility of the role.
