This study focused on the need for additional dance training in Wales, investigating what training was already available and how provision could be improved. The objective was to find out the current professional view on this issue and present the findings in a clear and informative way. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with dance professionals currently working in the Welsh dance sector. Their opinions’ were analysed and presented in graphs. Training, funding and support for new artists were identified as being essential to the development of a healthy dance sector. The participants also felt that within training, students need to be taught a wide range of skills in order to be prepared for the industry. The interviewees felt that the main training opportunities currently necessary are continued professional development courses, postgraduate study and vocational or intensive training. It was found that these could be achieved through further research and funding. Furthermore, the participants believed that partnerships and collaboration between dance companies, organisations and educational institutions, would contribute to developing the Welsh dance sector through the sharing of facilities and expertise. It is clear that steps have already been taken to enhance the sector but there are many areas that could be expanded on. This study is a starting point and should be able to inform future research.
