The first national youth dance company is to be set up as part of a review designed to ensure all children have their lives enriched by cultural education.

Education Secretary Michael Gove and Culture Minister Ed Vaizey welcomed the report. The Department for Education will invest £15 million over three years, pump-priming the system to make Mr Henley’s recommendations a reality.
