We run three Action Groups: Breathe; looking at health and wellbeing, Bounce; with a focus on youth dance, and Changemaker; looking at audience development. 

At these groups, regional leaders and community representatives come together to share policy updates, good practise and discuss politics and advocacy. We then look to these leaders to share those updates, (as relevant) to their networks/communities on the ground. 

If you would like to know more about these Action Groups please email:

Twice a year we meet our Critical Friends Equality Group: a dynamic cross-section of individuals from across the dance, community, and third sector who are invested in ensuring PDSW maintains an authentic and live conversation around diversity, equality and inclusion. 

This group has informed much of our work, from policy writing to recruitment, programming to marketing.
