“Take off your specialist hat and put on your dancing shoes”
That’s the invitation for a two-day sharing that Human Kinetics is supporting to be held Friday 2 December (Sadler’s Wells) and Saturday 3 December (Rambert). Come along and discover different perspectives on dance for creative wellness from the UK and across Europe – inspiration for dancers, teachers as well as therapists, practitioners, trainers, carers, health care providers and those interested in integrating dance and creativity into wellbeing and preventative health practice. Presented by the European Dance & Creative Wellness Foundation hosted by Sadler’s Wells and Rambert. Tickets are now on sale and available from £ 55.
If ‘Sitting is the new smoking’ and our sedentary lifestyle has exploded into an insidious epidemic, diminishing brain-body reflexes, disturbing circadian rhythms and provoking all manner of imbalances and disease in the subtle, interconnected systems and rhythms of the organism – then dance has a significant role to play as an inclusive, social activity that impacts health on a global level: on a physical, mental and emotional level, engaging individuals of all ages in life-giving activity, improving general levels of health, immune function, brain health, confidence and social integration.
Experience ‘Dancing Wellness’ from Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Monaco, Serbia, Switzerland with practitioners from companies such as Ballet Preljocaj (FR), Ich bin Ok (AU), ERGstatus Dance Theatre (SB) and Monica Gillette (DE) who join Foundation directors Clare Guss-West (CH) & Andrew Peter Greenwood (NL). UK ‘Dancing Wellness’ is explored through presentations and workshops from English National Ballet, Sadler’s Wells, Rambert, Aleka Loutsis, Filipa Pereira-Stubs, Darcey Bussell’s DDMIX, with contributions from ‘Dance for PD’® Mark Morris Dance Company,One Dance UK, Trinity Laban and many others.
