SURVEY: Dance and well-being across cultures

Dear IDTA members,

The global Covid-19 pandemic affects all our lives. A team of researchers at Middlesex University are embarking a project, which I hope you would consider worthwhile, on dance and well-being across cultures. We expect to officially document links between dance and perceived mental and physical well-being. The results could be used as a piece of evidence to promote dance at the forefront for our health and well-being, which is important as the creative industries are one of the biggest sectors contributing to the world economy.

As we are an academic body, we are not able to offer any financial compensation to those who participate in the survey. However, we are happy to supply a copy of the summary of results to the participants.

We would be grateful if you could take part in the online survey via following link:

As we would like to see any difference between professional and non-professional dancers, we would be most grateful if you could forward the above link to your students.

The link will remain open until 4th December 2020 at midnight.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you very much for your time.

Best wishes and stay safe,

Akiko Ueno
