Research looking at the impact of dance for people with neurological conditions has been dominated by a focus on mitigating symptoms; but how does it affect quality of life?
Research looking at the impact of dance for people with neurological conditions (including dementia, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s) has been dominated by quantitative means with a focus on mitigating symptoms. However, quality of life is not equated with physical health alone, necessitating the need for other approaches and foci to be explored.
Drawing on a knowledge exchange partnership between The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Scottish Ballet, Bethany and Catherine will explore notions of ‘value’ from the perspectives of dancers involved in the Company’s Dance Health programme, discuss developing methodologies, and share some exciting and unexpected findings arising from the research being conducted.
