Dancers’ Career Development has been supporting dancers for almost 50 years. Our vision is to support every UK dancer to successfully transition.

Helping dancers through professional and personal change is the lifeblood of DCD, removing barriers to career progression, enabling career sustainability and creating life-long learning opportunities. We support all professional dance artists in the UK regardless of geographical location, age or genre.

DCD believes in the power and potential of individuals. We see and recognize dancers as unique human beings, with exceptional skills and qualities. We are a curious and agile charity, able to flex responsibly to best respond to the needs of those we serve. We aim to think differently and to foster a culture of commitment to self-development, learning and growth.

We are guided by the following values:

Pioneering: Building on our heritage as the first transition programme for dancers world-wide, we continue to build upon our unique expertise, to be forward-thinking and courageous.
Ambitious: We are ambitious for dancers. There is no limit to what dancers are able to achieve with the right support. We are ambitious for DCD. We have the opportunity to do things differently and for our programmes and output to be dancer-driven and world-leading.
Supportive: We are supportive of each other and of the dancers and partners we work with. We respect each other’s individuality and unique path. There is no one size fits all.
Accountable: We are accountable to the dancers we serve, our funders and supporters and to each other.
