1st National Dance & Dementia Conference 2010

These are exciting times right now especially for the development of the whole dance and dementia field in the UK. This conference is the first of its kind ( see poster below and click on it to be taken to the site for registration details etc) and aims to bring together dancers, dance therapists, healthcare practitioners, medics and others to listen to, and take part in, a wide ranging programme of talks, presentations, workshops and performances. The aim is to boost the profile of dance and dementia and the contribution it can make to improving the care and quality of life of those with the condition and also those who care for them. It is also an exchange forum where many of us can meet for the first time enabling us all to reflect on current practice while also being able to identify new ways forward. TO ALL MY CANADIAN FRIENDS DO CONSIDER COMING YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT EXPERIENCE
