Yorkshire Dance are offering free workshops in Leeds, Barnsley and York this March for anyone who works with young people in dance. These workshops have grown out of a research project by the University of Leeds and Yorkshire Dance, working with teenagers and studying the benefits of dance to their health and well-being. The research was funded by Arts Council England and the workshop is supported by CYPDNN.
Fri 1 March Leeds 10am - 4.00pm
Mon 11 March York 4.00 - 7.00pm
Thu 14 Mar Barnsley 4.30 - 7.30pm

Develop expertise in teaching and leading dance with young people, inside or outside the schools setting. Explore a range of techniques, developed during the process, to support the positive physical, psychological and social impact of your dance practice. A mix of practical work and conversation, the workshops will explain the research findings and encourage you to share your own experiences and skills through peer learning and two-way practical exchange.
