There have been a number of close connections between People Dancing and C-DaRE at Coventry University and these formed the basis for thinking more broadly about the different ways in which research and practice interrelate.

The content discusses a number of specific projects that have this in focus, as well as collaborations that bring the ‘industry’ and academia together. Conversations between C-DaRE researchers shed light on current themes that inform experiences of working across the academic and professional practice communities, both in the UK and internationally. We also include references and links to a number of online resources that could be of interest to readers. All the contributions are from C-DaRE researchers, research students and our collaborators; many are also artist practitioners. We hope that the themes, which are wide-ranging, may stimulate ideas for developing more connections across the dance community. The collection would not have been possible without C-DaRE’s Lily Hayward-Smith who coordinated all the contributions from the C-DaRE team and provided editorial support. We thank our colleagues at People Dancing for their encouragement to produce this issue and for their support throughout to bring it to publication.

Inventing Embodiment podcasts

Dance Research Matters
Hosted by C-DaRE, and in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Dance Research Matters online event in May 2021 included panel discussions on themes relevant for shaping the future of dance research. The work is continuing with the AHRC and an expanded group of dance researchers from across the UK to build concrete plans for supporting future dance research.
