Sunday Reads #3: Dance The Game-Changer

26 April 2020

Looking ahead to International Dance Day on Wednesday, in this issue of Sunday Reads, we celebrate dance in all its glory and revisit Dance: The Game-Changer, a blog written by Kevin, our Co-Artistic Director, for Arts Council England.

Written in 2016, the blog coincided with the launch of our youth dance company, Chameleon Youth.   In the blog, Kevin shares his perspective on the importance of dance to the health and wellbeing of young people and reflects on his own experience as a dancer and a teacher.

A wonderfully personal piece, the blog connects with the reader, as it draws from Kevin’s own experiences and life as a dancer.

In the piece, Kevin highlights the transformative power of dance and all the reasons why dance should be celebrated as a creative force and as an art form; a perfect fit for International Dance Day!

We hope you enjoy the read – even if it is second time round.

Read the blog on the Arts Council England website here.

Join us on Wednesday 29 April to celebrate International Dance Day 2020.
Share videos, pictures, GIFs and messages celebrating dance on social media using the hashtags #DanceConnects #IDD2020.
