Past eventPerpetual Movement symposium
a symposium on dance and health
Rambert’s three-year programme supported by City Bridge Trust explores the therapeutic and well-being benefits of dance in a variety of healthcare contexts, from providing regular dance classes for people living with Parkinson’s or Dementia, to working with patients in hospitals and day centres.
To mark the conclusion of this programme, we’re hosting a day-long symposium bringing together arts practitioners and administrators with healthcare professionals to share their experiences, learning and insight. The day includes panel discussions, practical sessions and performances, and there is a choice of sessions throughout the day so you can structure your programme to align with your particular areas of interest or expertise.
- A keynote speech from Dr Daisy Fancourt, Senior Research Associate at University College London and author of the new book Arts in Health: designing and researching interventions, published by Oxford University Press.
- A talk from dancer turned doctor Keir Philip, with colleagues from DanceAble, on their work exploring new possibilities for dance in healing and rehabilitation.
- Practical workshops giving a first-hand experience of Rambert’s Dance for Parkinson’s and Dance for Dementia sessions.
- A session on working in partnership, led by CW+, the charity for Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
- A chance to hear direct from participants about their experiences in Rambert’s dance for health programmes.
Places cost £60 – £80, including lunch and refreshments, available to book from Wed 13 September.
