Dance and Health Programme strengthens connections across the region
October marks the final Dance and Health Networking Event which will take place at Bridlington Spa on Wednesday 29th October 10am – 1pm. Following the success of three regional training events which took place in Hull, Bradford and Scunthorpe, Jan Burkhardt (NHS) has been working with partners from the Regional Dance Development Network to plan and develop networking days which seek to bring together those working in both dance and health sectors to debate and discuss the commissioning of dance through health budgets.
Both Bradford and Scunthorpe have delivered successful networking days, bringing together a range of professionals from both sectors. The networking has showcased a range of community dance work, enabling conversations across sectors and raising the profile of dance to the health sector. Both the South Bank Hub and the Bradford Dance Network, are now pursuing further links to develop their dance and health programmes.
This programme is supported by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts.
