Your Body Your Risk.

Dance UK's newest book is a must-have for all dancers.

Dancers have an incredibly demanding and vigorous training regime. They need to be fitter, stronger and quicker than ever before in order to meet the demands of choreographers whose styles can be fast, eclectic and physically strenuous. Audiences also expect dancers to be highly trained, to be athletes as well as artists.

If they are to achieve performance excellence, dancers need to take responsibility for their own health and well-being. They need to work smarter not just harder. They need to know how to look after themselves, to minimise risk of injury and maximise their potential.

Your Body Your Risk is aimed at young dancers. It provides the know-how they need to become the best dancer they can, and to keep dancing for longer.

DANCE UK Press Release
May 2003

Dance UK and ADAD join forces

At the beginning of June, the Association of Dance of the African Diaspora (ADAD) and Dance UK join forces to more effectively promote the development of African Peoples' dance forms and support people working in these forms.

Dance UK is delighted to welcome 'Funmi Adewole as the ADAD Development Manager and a member of Dance UK's staff. 'Funmi has performed with Horse and Bamboo mask and puppetry theatre, Adzido Pan-African Dance Ensemble and the Chomondeleys. She was a member of the ADAD steering group before becoming ADAD's development manager in December 2002. She will be working with Dance UK on a part-time basis so that she can also continue her performing career.

ADAD's members will become members of Dance UK, and the ADAD steering committee will remain in place to guide the strategic development of the programme of activity. The idea is that the two organisations will work as one for three years, at the end of which ADAD could become an independent organisation should this be a viable option. Funding is in place for the current year, but needs to be raised for the next two years.

Plans for the next few months include a conference as part of Blazing at the South Bank, education work as part of the Wandsworth Arts Week in November and a series of meetings of the Writers Group. In addition, plans are brewing for a programme of work with Yorkshire Dance. These will be pilot initiatives, and will inform longer term planning. Plans are also in place to provide a database of information as part of a new Dance UK web site, revising the ADAD web site to be Hotfoot on-line, and occasional publications about different aspects of African Peoples' dance forms.

Jane Mooney, Chair of Dance UK said:

This is a really exciting development for Dance UK. We are committed to supporting and promoting the rich diversity of dance across the UK today, and the alliance with ADAD will be a major force in helping us to better achieve this ambition. It takes African Peoples' dance forms closer to the mainstream of dance, so helping ADAD to achieve its prime purpose. It is a win-win move for both organisations.

Debbie Thomas, Chair of ADAD Steering Committee said:

This alliance with Dance UK is exciting and also vital to assist ADAD to achieve its mission. Out of partnerships grow alliances and out of these grow robust commitments. We are hopeful this will be the outcome of the new move and benefit African People's Dance forms and the practitioners who work within them twofold.



Notes:

Dance UK is the industry lead body for dance professionals. It promotes healthier dance practice, professional development and represents the interests of dance across the UK.

ADAD is the Association of Dance of the African Diaspora. It has promoted the development of African Peoples' dance, including African, Caribbean and African-American dance forms, since the early 1990s.

Dance UK and ADAD have been working together informally for a couple of years, most recently in developing the Trailblazers initiative for dance artists working in African Peoples' dance forms.

As a result of ADAD being awarded an Arts Council London Regional Arts Lottery Programme organisational development award, it became clear that running a small organisation with big ambitions was not sustainable. Following a period of consultation with ADAD's members and key stakeholders, it was decided to explore the possibilities of a closer relationship with Dance UK.

Combining forces with Dance UK puts ADAD in a stronger position to deliver a programme of activity and fulfil its prime objective to move African Peoples' dance forms from the margins to the mainstream of dance in the UK.
