Dance to Work in Greenwich

Greenwich Dance’s new programme, Dance to Work, aims to improve health in the workplace.

 

The project runs from January 2011, offering dance sessions to employees in south east London, ending with a film and a final celebratory event.

The project will offer tailor-made activities for each organisation, with dance artists, physiotherapists and psychologists collaborating with Greenwich Dance on movements that will benefit the physical and mental well-being of the workers involved. Employers and staff can choose from a menu of dance activities, ranging from desk-based sessions on posture and alignment to creative choreographic tasks.

“Dance to Work is open to anyone, whether office-based staff, manual workers, carers, teachers or even journalists,” said Caron Loudy, artistic programme manager at Greenwich Dance. “Projects may be desk-based, take place at lunch-time or after work, and will address a range of topics: posture, alignment and flexibility to deal with fatigue and repetitive stress; attitude and motivation; and team-building and leadership.” Organisations interested in taking part should contact Caron Loudy on 020 8293 9741 or caron@greenwichdance.org.uk as soon as possible. Dance to Work is funded by Arts Council England.
