How can dance delivery physical practice take place online?

Artists, dancers, practitioners, community and voluntary art organisations and anyone interested in the arts are invited to attend an Arts Network Event on Wednesday 25 November 2020 online via Zoom from 6pm to 8pm.

Digital practice can never replace face to face delivery, but there are ways in which we can embrace it and use it positively with children and young people. In this Arts Café, Rachel Liggitt (previous technophobe!) will share her insights, learning and discoveries following over eight months of ‘delivering dance differently’.

Alexa Pugh, Shropshire Council’s arts development officer, said:-

“The choreography of our lives has changed in ways we could never have predicted. Many of us have seen dance now taking place in the home, alone or in smaller groups, from safe distances and with masks or screens rather than through physical contact. However, new spaces and practices have emerged, with learning and participation evolving and finding new ways to safely connect with children and young people. Please join us to hear some of Rachel’s digital stories and practical approaches.”
