Dance UK director Caroline Miller is stepping down from the role after 10 years.

She will leave the post at the end of March, following the completion of Dance UK’s merger with three other bodies to create new industry body One Dance UK.

Miller said she was “immensely proud” of what she and her colleagues at Dance UK had achieved over the past decade, claiming “dance now has a voice at the heart of policymaking and government”.

“This merger and the creation of One Dance UK will only strengthen the sector, but after 10 years leading Dance UK, it is time for someone else to take the new organisation forward and for me to move on to other opportunities,” she said.

Miller became director of Dance UK in January 2006. During her tenure she has presented two dance manifestos to the government, worked with politicians to create the All Party Parliamentary Dance Group and established a committee to ensure a diverse range of dance professionals are nominated for honours.

One Dance UK chair Sue Wyatt praised Miller for helping dance to become “discussed at every level of government”.

The new director of One Dance UK will be announced shortly.
