Dance and age inclusive practice handbook


Pathway to practice for dance leaders bringing different age groups together in their communities
by Ruth Pethybridge

In this book, Ruth Pethybridge combines creative guidance with the practical considerations associated with age inclusive practice. She includes a valuable section entitled 'Changing bodies and minds' which looks at the development of the body and mind at key stages of life. An excellent springboard from which to look at your own practice and assess your general awareness for making your sessions stimulating to people of all ages.

This excellent resource is an essential tool for anyone delivering dance in age inclusive contexts and features case studies from the following leading practitioners:
  • Rosemary Lee
  • Cecilia Macfarlane
  • Angela Praed
  • Oksana Tyminska
...and an article by Bisakha Sarker, Marks of Time, which was originally published in Animated, FCD's community dance magazine.
