Our Board draws on the expertise of key stakeholders from the performing arts world including: Equity; UK Theatre; the Society of London Theatre (SOLT); representatives from international dance companies, vocational schools and awarding organisations; and independent professionals such as casting directors, educationists and legal specialists. These direct links to industry place CDMT in the strongest possible position to lobby on issues of funding and policy affecting performing arts’ provision, and ensure our position at the forefront of innovation in education, assessment and training.
