Dancers’ Career Development (DCD) has been supporting professional dance for over 40 years. We help dancers to make the often difficult transition from professional dancing to a new career by giving them the confidence and skills they need to keep working beyond dance.

DCD is the only organisation of its kind in the UK and is a world leader in dancer transition
