Dancers’ Career Development (DCD) has been supporting professional dance for 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

Celebrating 40 years supporting dance
'The DCD is an organisation dedicated to helping future generations achieve excellence. The DCD also helps write the next chapters of the dance world by providing support to dancers whose ambitions and goals involve a continued life in the world of dance. Thankfully, the DCD has supported my studies in Business Management and leadership, something I hope will enable me to remain part of the dance world in the future' Steven McRae, Principal, The Royal Ballet
