National Coaching Programme

'It felt like it opened a giant door into the next chapter of my life, which will have an impact for years to come'

Coaching is a two way conversation, offering dancers a safe space to explore the positive changes you may want to make in your life or career, and to find ways to put those ideas into action.

No matter what point you are at in your career or transition, coaching can help you to find the clarity and confidence to move forward in your life.

Through DCD’s coaching sessions, you will build an awareness of the behaviours and attitudes that may be holding you back from achieving your dreams or just planning your next move in life.

Coaching is based on a foundation of trust and empathy. It is not about making judgements or telling people what to do. Each coaching session is driven by you. You decide the topic and outcome. Our coaches will support you in getting there.

Coaching is an invitation to take action and create the life you want. You may not realise yet just how powerful a tool it is – book a session and see for yourself!
