Youth Dance England is currently working with 17 enthusiastic, motivated and inspirational young people who represent their regions in promoting and advocating dance for all children and young people. The role of the National Young Dance Ambassador carries a lot of responsibility along with a lot of rewards and opportunities for personal growth and achievement.
The Role of a National Young Dance Ambassador:
- Promote the value, benefits and development needs of young people’s dance
- Advocate locally, regionally and nationally by helping to identify and promote relevant successes and challenges
- Contribute both your own and peer opinions about YDE’s activities through informal consultation and formal evaluation processes, and contribute to the planning and delivery of future programmes from a young person’s perspective
- Represent YDE and its partners at specific events
National Young Dance Ambassadors are also responsible for taking on specific tasks which vary according to their strengths and interests, and depending on YDE’s focus. This year the Ambassadors programmed performances in the Clore Ballroom during U.Dance 2012 taking on roles such as compere, programmer, stage manager and steward — another excellent opportunity to develop their skills!
Three of the National Young Dance Ambassadors are from Yorkshire: Charlie Buchanan, Hannah Silcox and Amber Watts.
