Dance Inspire Podcast

Listen to the UK Dance Industry podcast here, get inspired and motivated to achieve


This platform is for you.


Hello and welcome to this site fellow dance lovers.  My name is Gillian Beattie and I advocate dance in the UK. We have outstanding talent, platforms, access and people in every reach of our community delivering and changing peoples lives for the better with dance.  For users of Dance Inspire UK it is about connecting and sharing.  It may be YOU who creates the next best thing.  


This site brings together our dance genres, journeys, experience and connections to help UK dance reach another level that pioneers no other.  What that is... I have no idea yet, but you might, especially through connecting with members on the social media groups etc... so this is the beginning...  

A good place I thought to begin in this quest to reach out and connect with creative minds, was to set these web pages, to help with information for individuals and links to what is out there that you can tap into.  I set up Dance Inspire Podcast which broadcasts bi- weekly (1st & 15th of each month) to share dance journeys, news, tips and advice so you can reach your goals quicker. I have had AMAZING GUESTS so please check out the episodes as they hold so much information and are definitely worth your time.   I also set up a private Facebook group where I post motivational actions or philosophies to help your mindset where fellow dance teachers, dancers and companies comment and advise to help each other.  So now it's your turn to join the fun.  Take action on planning, working hard and reaching your goals to make a difference in our dance industry.  Join the private group to have your say, opinions and help others. There are no barriers to what you can achieve and I hope seeing and hearing how others have chose their paths inspires you to take yours.  THERE IS ONLY ONE YOU!
