We are recruiting for a Chair, Treasurer and Board Members

Dancefest is looking for people with passion, energy and commitment to join Dancefest’s Board, to help drive the organisation forward, and is looking to recruit a Chair, Treasurer and Board Members.

Dancefest works in Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We believe that dance has the ability to enhance people's lives. We lead classes and projects with people of all ages and abilities in a range of settings, including schools, village halls and community centres, and we also create performances with our participants for outdoor and unusual spaces.

Dancefest is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and also receives funding from Worcester City Council. In 2020 Dancefest will celebrate its 30th anniversary as a dance development organisation, having originally been set up as a three-week festival in 1990.

We would particularly welcome applications to become board members from people with knowledge and experience in the following areas:

  • Dance, ideally as an artist, producer or teacher
  • Financial planning and management, with possibility of undertaking the role of Treasurer
  • Income generation and fundraising
  • Legal
  • Health
  • Education
  • Disability
  • Outdoor and site-specific art

Our Chair and board members have a vital role in the setting and achieving of Dancefest’s ambitions.
