The UDO Insurance Scheme

The UDO Insurance Scheme

The United Dance Organisation has teamed up with specialist arts insurance broker La Playa to help protect dance teachers from spiralling insurance premiums, inadequate cover and expensive duplications from maintaining multiple non-specialist policies.

UDO Insurance Scheme benefits:

  • 10% discount for UDO teaching members.
  • Comprehensive cover, tailor-made for dance teachers (we can also provide cover for  dancers who are non-teaching members of the UDO).
  • A broker who understands you and specialises in the performing arts.
  • Expert professional advice.
  • First class service & claims handling.

Performers Portfolio is exclusively available through La Playa, and is underwritten by Sterling Insurance Company, with premiums starting from as little as £100 plus tax per annum.

Covers include:  

  • Personal Accident: cover for injuries which could affect your ability to perform – and ultimately, your livelihood.
  • Public and Product Liabilities: for your teaching or dancing activities, audience and merchandise. Public Liability also covers compliance with the Data Protection Act, and health and safety issues.

PLUS, depending on your circumstances, you can add in: 

  • Employers Liability: for volunteers, trainees and co-workers.
  • Money: fees, per diems, costume and DVD sales income, and programme/merchandise cash.
  • Property: worldwide cover for home office contents, computers (including laptops), instruments, hired-in equipment, sheet music, props and wardrobe, portable dance flooring, barres and mirrors, merchandise stock, show DVDs and brochures.
  • Loss of income: protects income streams during physical and technological disruptions (fire, flood, power & telecommunications failure, prevention of access to venue and studio).

We can also arrange:

  • Business Travel: worldwide cover up to 90 days per trip.
