FRONTLINEdance offers a range of training and development opportunities. Since we began we have provided opportunities for disabled and non-disabled dance artists to train and shadow us which has often led to employment. We have provided some artists with their first professionally paid jobs and often been a stepping stone for progressing into further employment.

We recognise that disabled dance artists don’t have the same access routes into dance as their non-disabled peers. So if you are a disabled dance artist and would like our support please get in touch:

In addition, FRONTLINEdance offers ‘non-dance’ based training for local disabled adults living in Stoke-on-Trent or Staffordshire. This is via our FREE training programme funded by ESF ‘Transcend’. More information can be found here:

Access Routes into dance

Elevate funding from Arts Council England and a grant for Esmee Fairbairn has meant that we are now able to stream line our community classes.

We run session for a variety of needs and disabilities and accommodate everyone – making us fully inclusive. This also means that we can encourage those with a natural flare and enthusiasm for dance to train and take their next steps towards developing towards a career in dance.

Breakthrou’aDvANCE member’s perform, choreograph, support in the delivery of our workshops, and sometimes perform with our professional performance team. It's open to disabled and non-disabled people. 

All members are committed to working at an advance level, and dancers must audition for a place in the group. They not only create their own work and perform in each others choreography, but they are taught the health & safety aspects of being a dancer too. Contemporary dance technique classes are taught, and the members create their own warm ups and cool down. Assisting in FRONTLINEdance workshops is part of being a member of this group, and leaderships skills are also introduced. Some members now team-teach parts of our sessions, and some have become paid members of staff.  

FRONTLINEdance regular sign post the group to other possible training opportunities, workshops, job opportunities and to volunteering.

FRONTLINEdance also deliver our successful TRANSCEND programme as an additional / alternative route.
