Care to Dance gives young people and children with experience in care the opportunity to express themselves through dance in a safe and inclusive environment. Young people are brought together as a community to share their love of dance and to make lasting friendships. 

Beth Vecchione is the director of Care to Dance and a qualified social worker. Beth is from the Northeast where she still lives. She runs Care to Dance workshops both in the Northeast and in London, and she’s looking to grow the enterprise nationally.  

Beth’s unique combination of experience as a dance teacher and a social worker means she understands the kinds of issues young people with care experience face. She’s passionate about improving their mental wellbeing and educational outcomes through dance.  

This week we had the privilege to chat to Beth about how she started the programme and the benefits for young people. Care to Dance is a synergy between dance and social work that we think is rather special.
