Why is this free?
Dance Mama Live! is brilliantly supported by Arts Council England and working in partnership with One Dance UK, Sadler’s Wells, DanceXchange, Yorkshire Dance and Clearcut which enables you to access the best content we can bring together (and which we believe you deserve) for FREE. Hooray!
I’ve been out of the industry for a time, can I take part?
Definitely! We warmly welcome participants who have had to step away from the industry for a period of time due to the pressures of parenting/life (this was a driver for the project) as well as welcoming those with sustained careers to build further on their skills with the potential for all participants to make connections that will be of benefit to them and the industry
Who do you consider to be a dancing parent?
Dance Mama is committed to being inclusive for parents from all backgrounds working in dance and extends this definition beyond performers to those working in studios and off-stage in professional contexts including state and private education. Please see our Eligibility Policy for more information.
My children are grown-up can I take part?
Yep! Once a parent, always a parent.
Do I need a Zoom account to take part?
Yes, this is the platform we have chosen to make the sessions as accessible as possible. We appreciate some people may only be able to watch the replays if they don’t have an account which will be sent as a link within 48 hours after each session. I would like to add here that Zoom accounts are free also.
Can I participate with my camera off?
Yes. Although we would love to see some faces, but it’s entirely up to you if you want to be seen, or simply enjoy engaging with us as a ‘viewer-engager’ rather than a ‘viewed-engager’.
What is Dance Mama doing to support my safety?
Working together with partners, Dance Mama has risk assessed this activity, and has prepared some safety online and etiquette tips.
I’ve missed the Live – will there be a replay?
Yes, replays which will be sent as a link within 48 hours after each session.
Can I take part in both taster sessions?
We want to make sure these sessions are as accessible as possible, so please help us to do this by just coming to one session.
I can’t access the link – can you help me?
Please email us if you need support – firstname.lastname@example.org
