Notes from Keep Listening Keep Talking #1: ‘The fear of being free’

“I deliver an undergraduate degree programme that focuses on popular and social dance forms. I often ask why students are afraid of freestyling and feel safer staying in the boundaries of technique exercises?  Is the transmission of popular and social dances within academic institutions creating a culture of fear? How do we ensure that the freedom that is inherent in these styles is accessible?”

This conversation was introduced by Carla Trim-Vamben (University of East London) and facilitated by ID and Dance HE.
