Ali Golding – The Science of Dance: Why Movement Works for Learning
Ali holds a degree in Dance Theatre. For almost 30 years she’s worked as a choreographer on stage, film, and television with artistes such as Twiggy, Kylie and David Gilmour. Then, in 2011 she completed a Master’s degree, which led to a whole new career as a Dance Scientist.
Ali will explain how she has created a pioneering dance-based educational tool called Developmental Dance Movement™. Her published research and her work developed through her organization MovementWorks® has been described as “groundbreaking”. Ali will give the audience the chance to experience ‘embodied learning’ and how effective it can be.
“Learning by using the body, as well as the mind is extremely powerful and I am proud that my groundbreaking research proves it.”
