Awareness Through Dance

Posted on May 3, 2012

Saturday, April 28 saw the first Get Connected event, organised by Awareness Through Dance to provide an environment for meaningful and non-judgmental networking. Held at London’s Rose Club, it gave members of the industry the chance to discuss topical themes, such as dancers’ rights, community dance and social enterprise, and success and marketing tips.

Megan-Louise Preston, founder of Awareness Through Dance, says: “It was so encouraging to see all types of people from the industry coming together and talking in such a positive manner, coming up with ideas and ways to progress together rather than struggling by ourselves.” 

The Awareness Through Dance events aim to encourage relationships so dancers can progress in a positive and collaborative way. The event included a special performance by Slum Civilians Dance Company in choreography by London Dyer. 

Awareness Through Dance will be planning future events that focus on support for dancers run by dancers.
