  • Provide a forum for professional and scholarly debate.

  • Promote and disseminate excellence in dance teaching, learning and research.

  • Collect, exchange and disseminate information.

DanceHE, represents the interests of its HEI members to organisations such as the funding councils, Office for Students formally known as HEFCE and Higher Education Academy in areas concerning funding, policy and processes. Acting as a mediating body DanceHE facilitates collaboration and debate across institutions – drawing together teachers, practitioners and researchers to share information and best practice. We also operate this site through which members can share information and promote events through an email list and this website.
