HEALTHY YOUNG DANCERS | GUIDANCE NETWORK ADVOCATE TRAINING

Thu 1 Feb

In partnership with the DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) and the GuiDANCE Network.

This training is specifically designed to prepare dance teachers to share learning with peers – and to become advocates for the GuiDANCE Network and the work of DanceEast. Pre-requisites for attending include a basic understanding of the topic of growth and development (either through experience or previous training).

ABOUT SIOBHAN MITCHELL

I trained as a dancer before going on to complete a BA Hons in Dance Studies at the University of Roehampton, an MSc in Dance Science at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and an MRes in Health and Wellbeing at the University of Bath. Awarded a full ESRC studentship in 2014, I completed my PhD at the University of Bath exploring growth and maturation in the context of dance, specifically psychosocial and physical implications of differing maturing timing in adolescent dancers.

Alongside my work as part of the Adolescent Dancer, I work as a research fellow in child and adolescent health. I am passionate about providing education about adolescence and how we can support young people in dance.
