Dance/Connect is a research project led by University College London in partnership with Dance Base. We want to understand whether online dance classes can support young people (aged 16-24) living with anxiety through providing a sense of belonging to an online group. We are working with young people to deliver the project, and we plan to collect surveys, carry out focus groups, and use arts-based methods to explore young people's experiences. We have a dedicated website if you'd like to learn more.

This project is funded by the UKRI Loneliness and Social Isolation in Mental Health Network.

We are currently recruiting for our Advisory Committee

We would like to hear from young people aged 16-24 who are living in the UK and currently experiencing anxiety and/or have experience doing research who would like to become a member of our Intergenerational Advisory Committee. The committee will support our research exploring if and how 8 weeks of online dance classes can support young people. To learn more about this opportunity, please click here (deadline 2 July 2021).
