Safe in Dance International (SiDI) believes that it is the right of everyone involved in dance to teach, study, train, rehearse and perform in a safe and supportive environment. With this in mind we support, develop, encourage and endorse the implementation of healthy dance practice worldwide.
We are as a dance community facing challenges as Covid-19 keeps us in lock down and restricted in our activities. We wish all of the dance community healthy and safe living and dancing wherever this takes place.
We and our partners are working to support your needs as much as we can through this time.
For guidance on delivering and participating in dance classes on line please go to our blog page
To listen to the online discussion “Safe Dance Practice in Quarantine” presented by SiDI and IADMS leaders, please click here
For links to partner organisations who are providing guidance and support for dance teachers and dancers at this time please go here.
If you have questions about safe and healthy dance practice (both in lockdown and delivering or dancing remotely, as well as while you move back to dancing in the studio) please send these to us and we will endeavour to answer them as soon as possible, including signposting you to organisations that may help as appropriate. If you would like these to stay confidential please let us know, if not, we would like to share the question and answers (anonymously) through our social media and web pages so that you all have access to this. Please send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or send a DM on social media.
Should you wish to arrange an online seminar by one of the SiDI team to discuss safe and healthy practice and currently anything specific to issues around online provision, including topics such as particular participant groups or how to manage teaching online, please contact email@example.com.
For the next few months, understanding the financial difficulties that many of our colleagues are facing, SiDI is also reducing its CPD Certifications to all dance practitioners. Please go to the shop page to find these reductions.
