This chapter discusses a collaborative pilot project led by staff from the University of Leeds BA dance programme and Yorkshire Dance, the West Yorkshire region's national dance agency. The BA dance programme is housed within the School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds, a research-led university in the north of England. The chapter describes an area of dance activity occurring within a range of community and educational contexts. It considers ways in which higher education dance programmes and the community dance industry could work together to facilitate the dance graduate's transition into the world of work. The chapter examines the professional development opportunities for current practitioners. It also describes that the West Yorkshire Dance Leadership project is an example of a particular type of higher education/industry collaboration.
