Arts Award

Arts Award

Dance4 has joined Arts Award Welcome, a badge scheme offered by Arts Award, the national qualification for young people in the arts.

The Arts Award Welcome badge announces that Dance4 supports the Arts Award and can help young people aged 11-25 to achieve aspects of their award programme – such as taking part in the arts, meeting arts professionals, leadership and arts apprenticeship.

Working in partnership with Youth Dance England, Dance4 is the regional partner organisation for the East Midlands, and the strategic voice and development agency for youth dance in the region. Through our programmes we encourage young people to take the lead in shaping the future for themselves and others to follow.

Along with our sub regional dance partners we provide many programmes across the East Midlands which you can get involved in and complete an Arts Award.  We want to encourage you to develop your own practice by providing you with creative choices, challenges, and exciting learning environments.

Arts Award is a national qualification which supports young people aged 11-25 to develop as artists and arts leaders. Arts Award is run at three levels Bronze, Silver and Gold and is offered at Levels 1, 2 and 3 on the QCF (Qualification Credit Framework)and accredited by Ofqual.

‘Taking my Gold Arts Award has helped me to dig deeper into my own arts development within dance and other amazing art forms. Doing Stamping Ground allowed me to learn about all the many elements that are required to make an event go well. The Arts Award is a fantastic opportunity I enjoy doing and I am thankful to all the support and help I have had from Dance4.’
