SAFEGUARDING IN DANCE

Cheshire Dance delivers an annual CPD workshop in safeguarding specifically for dance artists, teachers and facilitators who work with children under the age of 18 and adults at risk. 

If your organisation has a group that would benefit from the workshop then we can come to your space and deliver the workshop at your premises.  Some organisations who have already invited us to deliver to their team are Yorkshire Dance, Movema, Dance Manchester/Co. Chameleon


Safeguarding looks at what needs to happen to keep children, young people and adults at risk safe.  As dance providers we have a ‘duty of care’ to provide a safe environment that is conducive to promoting the health and well-being of these groups ensuring that they have a safe and enjoyable experience every time.


This 1 day workshop covers a wide range of subjects within safeguarding. Elements of the training can be tailored to the particular needs or priorities of your group and may include the following:-

  1. - Recent changes to safeguarding policies
