Event details

Wednesday 19 May
10:00 - 11:30 (BST)

So much has happened over the past twelve months which has divided the country in so many ways, yet unified voices echo the same words. 2020 highlighted the need to explore further, how the dance industry can continue to become fully inclusive and celebrate diversity. Now more than ever, we have a duty of care to our students to be fully informed about what it means to be inclusive and how as teachers we embrace diversity.

You will learn how to start the conversation about the importance of racial equality without fear of reproach or attack, and learn to understand how you can begin to address diversity and inclusivity within your schools by applying simple methods. This introduction section will support you on your journey to reflect on how you appreciate diversity and respect racial equality.

An insight into the journey of a mixed race teacher. From the late 70’s to the present, TIRED Movement co-founder Stacey Green will explain her personal experience of transitioning from a dancer into teaching as an Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing member.

The session will be split into 4 focus areas, that will start to open up honest conversations around racial equality, diversity and inclusion through discussions and practical activities:

1. F.E.A.R: Overcoming the fear of conversation about racial equality

  • Focus
  • Explore
  • Assess
  • Reflect

2. The Self and Your Diversity Bubble: creating a personal ‘diversity map’

3. Diversity vs. Inclusion: the dangers of being diversive without being inclusive

4. ‘The Who, The What, The How’: exploring the level of understanding and knowledge of Society members and the need for more resource.
