What is it?

The heart of Dance Mama's™ work is learning from sharing experiences.

This project help us develop the steps we have made towards one of our long-term goals of transferring the valuable information we have garnered in the professional sector to parents in the general public , where dance can be used as a vehicle to support their wellbeing pre and postnatally.

The aim of which is to bring this research to specialist classes to postnatal mums in the general public. 

In 2021 we piloted two online sessions for mums in the general public whose social isolation was increased due to the pandemic and may not have danced before. Building on this work, our Lead Dance Artist, Laura Harvey (long-time colleague, mum, Head of Creative Programmes- English National Ballet), is working with our Founder/CEO, Lucy McCrudden, on this special project, with the support of Arts Partnership Surrey and GLive

After running a taster session in early November at The Arts Centre Guildford, we will be reflecting on our findings to develop this work further.
