Abstract: This research examines the impact of the Youth Dance England School Dance Coordinator initiative on secondary school physical education teachers, focusing on one of eight School Dance Coordinators and the non-specialist teachers that received her dance training programme within Worcestershire. This study explored the benefits, place and delivery of dance education within the National Curriculum, considering the value of employing dance specialists in schools and the most appropriate subject for dance to inhabit within the curriculum. The study requested the participation of thirteen participants, the Worcestershire coordinator and all of the (twelve) non-specialist teachers that she trained. The coordinator participated in a semi-structured interview, offering information and views on the initiative and four of the non-specialist teachers completed a questionnaire, providing their opinions and experiences of the initiative. The participants’ responses were compared to assess the impact of the initiative. The majority of responses provided by the coordinator were supported by the non-specialist teachers. The coordinator and teachers shared views on the success of the training programme content, involvement of dance specialists in schools and supported continuation of the initiative. The initiative had a positive impact on the participating schools, and although continuation of the initiative is in question due to funding, Youth Dance England has developed a large scale future project for dance both in and out of schools.
