WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
Connecting in person
From workshops, seminars and online courses there are many ways you can connect with Dance Mama live
Up and running...
Night time course: Wednesdays 23, 30 September and 7 October, 8- 9pm
Day time: Thursdays 24 September, 1 and 8 October, 10.30-11.30am.
Dance Mama (aka Lucy McCrudden) will lead you through 3, glorious hours of training online (1 hour a week over three weeks), on the ins and outs of project management in a dance learning and participation context. Following the success of transferring the course on line this summer, Dance Mama is offering two more opportunities to learn Lucy's approach to project management the Autumn.
Covering everything from initial ideas, to building partnerships, finance, delivery and evaluation. With over 18 years’ experience in leadership and project management in high-profile projects with world-class organisations (including the Royal Opera House, The Place and Rambert), Lucy will give you a good understanding of best practice on how to get your idea up and running.
Who’s this relevant for?
Anyone who wants to up-skill their project management, confirmation of best practice for new and early career project managers and a fresh perspective for the seasoned project manager. The added bonus of networking with other like-minded individuals who have the desire to deliver artistic projects of this nature.
You do not need to be a Mama! All project managers are welcome.
Collaborating with One Dance UK I have also arrange the following offer:
£105 General Admission
£55 One Dance UK members, or employees of member organisations
Bring Your Own Beverage and have a chat (FREE)
Friday 31st July, 5:15 - 5:55pm
I am inviting you, the Dance Mama community, to 40mins with me to have a chance to reflect on what’s happened in these last weeks. By ‘long spooning’ our experiences with each other it will aim to give us some empathetic ears, identify some really key issues emerging and ideally spark some ideas of what can do to progress as healthily as possible in this new era.
If you fancy joining state your interest here and I’ll send you the Zoom code/ password with a bit of a structure of how it will work.
If the time doesn’t suit (as no doubt juggling everything it may not), there's another chance later in the month. I’m pretty sure the 40 minutes will fly by!
Needless to say, the presence of your children on Zoom is a non-issue, as is cats, dogs and other inhabitants of your home.
This is aimed at parents who work in dance, but if any other dance folk want to come along and join in that is A-OK.
