Reason three

We provide experiences that positively benefit your organisation by building your team

Here’s how dance positively impacts workplaces:

– Promotes social interaction, relationships, and team building
– Breaks down barriers between individuals and teams, allowing people to get to know each other in a fun and non-threatening way
– Improves individual and collective mood, increasing overall happiness
– Enhances individual and group health and fitness, benefiting mind, body, and soul

When we dance together, it promotes equality and helps us see each other as equals and fellow humans. Dance diffuses conflicts, improves communication, and fosters mutual respect and awareness. It also develops attention and concentration, as dancers must be in control of their balance, posture, and movement, while simultaneously listening and responding to the beat and rhythm of the music.

Dancing is radically different from ‘work’, which opens new possibilities for problem-solving, creativity, decision-making, and action. These are all essential for effective working.

Dance increases motivation, stimulates the production of positive ‘feel-good’ chemicals in our bodies, and evokes strong emotional responses. Motivation is crucial for productivity and cooperation in the workplace. Dancing makes us more alert, creative, and driven to succeed. Additionally, it promotes health and fitness, leading to improved performance and reduced absenteeism. With all these benefits, why not consider one-off or regular workplace dance sessions?
