Jo Fong selected for Dance UK’s, Dancers Mentoring

After a popular application process 20 dancers all nominated by their peers as future leaders, have been selected by a panel of dance professionals to take part in Dance UK’s Dancers’ Mentoring Scheme. The programme organised by Dance UK in partnership with Dancers’ Career Development, recognises the huge potential for dancers to become leaders. It is designed to build capacity within the dance workforce and to ensure skills and knowledge retention in the sector, addressing problems of succession to key artistic and non-artistic roles.

Coreo Cymru’s associate artist, Jo Fong, has been selected to be part of this programme that over eight months would facilitate each dancer to be matched with a paid mentor who is a high profile leader in dance or another sector. Through discussion the dancers have the chance to identify transferable skills, build confidence and consider their career ambitions.
