Perspectives on Practice: Women dancing with women - reflecting on practice in specific contexts
Timings: 10:00 - 11:30
In this event Louise Klarnett and Emily Jenkins will together reflect on their participatory work with women, particularly referring to The Magpie Project (for mums and under 5s in temporary accommodation) and Move Dance Feel (for women living with and beyond cancer).

Louise and Emily will be in conversation about how they lead dance activity that is both inspiring as well as sensitive to the female focused contexts in which they're working.

The event will also include a 30 minute group discussion where the audience are invited to contribute thoughts around enabling safe environments for women in participatory dance.

This event is free of charge to People Dancing Members and £5.00 for non-members.

Bookings for this event are now closed

Extended booking deadline: 11:00 Monday 13 September 2021!
