During this two-day residency, led by artist and choreographer Stuart Waters, up to 20 artists from across the UK will immerse themselves in practical and creative learning around equality in dance and dance education.
With a laboratory feel, this residency offers a safe place and professional development opportunity to experiment, while developing a rich understanding of enabling a student-centred pedagogy.

The residency is part of the launch of a new network called Critical Dance Pedagogy through Discourse & Practice, led by Professor Angela Pickard (Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health), that is seeking to highlight and challenge inequality in dance education and the dance sector.
The Critical Dance Pedagogy through Discourse & Practice network is funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and led by Professor Angela Pickard (Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health, Canterbury Christ Church University), co-led by Dr Kathryn Stamp (Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE), Coventry University) with a core team: Darren Carr (NSCD), Andrew Hurst (ODUK), Dr Aoife McGrath (Queen’s University, Belfast) and Dr Wendy Timmons (University of Edinburgh), supported by project manager Dr Precious Sango (Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health, Canterbury Christ Church University).
The steering group of industry partners for the network are: People Dancing, Dance HE, South East Dance, Parable Dance, Parents and Carers in Performing Arts (PiPA), Advancing Women's Aspirations in Dance (AWA), and Dance Mama. New Adventures are also supporting the planning of this network.
