1 – 2pm Lunch
2 – 4:30pm Supervision sessions for Community Dance Practitioners with Dr Eila Goldhahn
Are you working with kids, elderly people, people with special needs or people with mental health problems? Are you excited but also sometimes exhausted (and occasionally at your wit’s end) by the challenges that working with dance in the community can bring?
These sessions are specifically designed with community dance practitioners’ needs in mind to meet, share and to move within a supportive setting of their own. Away from the stresses to deliver and to perform, this is a supportive and private space to explore both in movement and words the delightful and the more difficult experiences of your work with dance. In these supervision sessions focus and witnessing are on you, giving you a break from seeing and responding to others. They are a time to nourish yourself, to reflect and to develop a better understanding of the work and populations that you engage with.
Having extensive experience of working with dance with different urban and rural populations in Devon, both as a community dance practitioner and as a dance movement therapist, Eila provides supervision that is based in embodiment and reflective talking and that is responsive to your needs as a professional.
