Sports Promotion Programme

Youth + Sport

Dance is one of the 75 sports supported and promoted by Y+S (10-20 year olds) and children's sports (5-10 year olds). This includes all couple dances except rock'n'roll (acrobatics). The Y+S courses offered by the association, club or dance school are arranged by the Y+S leader. He/she is supported administratively by a Y+S coach.

The future Y+S leaders acquire the know-how for this demanding activity in the basic leader course. The aim of the one-week leader course is to teach the leaders the basics of how to plan and conduct youth-oriented lessons in a targeted, interesting and varied way. After this basic training, numerous further training modules are available to the Y+S leaders.
