Embrace, our ongoing professional development programme includes practical and reflective work and allows space for sharing and debate around dance-making and community practice. We train our artists with specialist knowledge, refining their skills for our participation programme and open the training to the wider sector.
Our previous Embrace programmes have covered themes such as dance and dementia, safeguarding, working with young people attending Pupil Referral Units, Emergency First Aid, emotional wellbeing for artists and inclusive dance practise. Luca Silvestrini and other prominent experts bring a wealth of experience to the programme. Organisations and speakers have included Dance United Yorkshire, Shape Arts, Gendered Intelligence, Diane Adams, Richard Coaten, Equity and Music for Life.
