Testing: Invigorate 2020 - Dance In Participatory Settings 

Exploring Participatory Practice - Presentation of rationale and methodology

Building Authentic Leadership - Best practice and engagement strategies 


Dawn Hartley www.dawnhartley.com  has many years of experience of leading dance sessions in participatory settings. Now freelance, Dawn is developing an online programme of training and support for dancers who also have experience and interest in this work and who want to continue to grow their practice during the lockdown. 


Dawn says “In these weird times, I’m finding it a challenge to apply for opportunities and I appreciate others might be too. Whatever you want to send to register your interest is absolutely fine. I will offer these sessions to everyone who registers interest and just need some info to help me plan each session accordingly." 

If you can, email an example of prior experience and attach links to your cv or biog. Send a link to video of yourself (max. 3 mins) speaking if you prefer.  

Please register by emailing dawnhartley@gmail.com by Monday 4 May. Answering these questions would be useful for planning.

Is your interest in: 

·      designing future live sessions and live projects?

·      understanding more about strategies to ensure full engagement from everyone? 

·      implementing and build best practice? 

·      other reasons (please state) 


Some preparatory work (written or video) will be offered between online group sessions.


Dawn can offer this programme online with 8 dance artists per session.

Each 20 minute online session will include:

Introduction by Dawn


Practical movement and vocal tasks

Closing notes


Small group follow up sessions led by Dawn at later dates (agreed by the participants).
