This symposium brings together a wealth of experience and talent from independent practitioners from across the UK, all having a commitment to excellent, innovative dance practice, steeped in childhood research and theory. Together they offer over 160 years of early years dance experience.

The day is aimed at supporting and developing practitioners and artists working in early years dance and builds on the Early Years Dance Networks strategies and aims in developing dance practice.

It is for dancers, directors and choreographers wanting to use dance with the children they work with or wanting to explore and develop early years participation and/or performance. The day hosts a mixture of practical sessions and talking sessions that you are able to choose from on the booking form.

Guest Workshop Presenters/Speakers include: Ruth Churchill-Dower, Liz Clark, Andrew Coombes, Anna DalyKimberley Harvey, Louise Klarnett, Jasmine Pasch, Claire Underwood and Family Arts Campaign.

People Dancing are on the lookout for artists, practitioners and organisations to bring an unusual, imaginative and engaging practical workshop to our symposium that will take place as part of the day.

We are looking for something extraordinary in early years dance practice. Work or approaches that are significant, unique and that have or have the potential to be of national interest and influence to a network of practitioners.

The deadline for proposals is 5pm Friday 27th September 2019 and the successful applicant will be notified by Friday 4th Oct 2019.

There is a fee of £100 available for the successful applicant plus a ticket to the symposium.
