IF Dance Festival
A celebration of inclusion and dance
LPM Dance Theatre and Lancaster Arts bring together a broad range of renowned practitioners and companies specialising in dance as part of healthcare, child development, education and social change for a one-day festival of workshops, performance and discussions.
The day is practice focused and, in practical workshops, delegates can opt to engage practically or as an observer. All workshops are devised for people with and without a movement background. The programme has been designed for delegates to engage with all aspects of the day if possible.
IF is open to artists, healthcare professionals, researchers, students and anyone interested in the area of inclusive dance practice.
IF will feature Indepen-dance, Primed for Life, Mary Prestige, Dr Richard Coaten and Lisa Simpson Inclusive Dance amongst others.
