Welcome to the Foundations for Excellence website. This is the home for information, guidance and sign-posting in the area of health and wellbeing for young musicians and dancers.

 

Foundations for Excellence exists to share research, resources and best practice for the support and development of talented young musicians, singers and dancers. This is currently achieved through the online resource hub, the commission of new information sheets on a variety of specific topics and the biennial conference.

 

Foundations for Excellence mission statement, July 2011

 

Foundations for Excellence began as a Department for Children, Schools and Families' Music and Dance Scheme conference in February 2009 at Dartington Hall. The energy that was evident at this event made it clear to the programme committee that this work needed to be developed and distributed further; to provide a resource to as many practitioners and young musicians and dancers to have access to the latest research, ideas, examples and good practice as possible.
