DANCE, SPORTS & WELLBEING
People all around the world dance and engage in group sports. These activities are believed to be good for physical and mental health, but the evidence-base is still scarce and we know little about why these activities bring any benefits.
With generous funding from Sport England, TORCH (University of Oxford) and the Nottingham Trent University, I work with non-academic partners to answer the questions: What can activities like dance or sports do for social bonding and mental wellbeing? What is the role of aligning our movements to others in this process?
I also offer consultancy and data evaluation services to charities and companies aiming to track the impact of their programmes. Please get in touch if interested!
