EADA is now part of a new group that has been set up in November 2020 called
SaferDance - Dance School Safeguarding Working Group
The Dance School Safeguarding Working Group (DSSWG) aims to help protect children and at-risk adults who attend dance teaching in out-of-school settings (“the sector”) in the UK by supporting and facilitating the implementation of high standards of safeguarding.
There are two key aims of the Working Group:
Education of stakeholders (including dance teachers, children, young adults, at-risk adults, parents, school staff, dance associations, local authorities and other interested parties)
Cooperation within and regulation of the sector
