The impact of dance on health of young people
Hampshire Dance and Youth Dance England
TV presenter, Strictly Come Dancing star and fitness expert, Camilla Dallerup fronts the brand new Youth Dance and Health film, produced by Hampshire Dance and Youth Dance England. This short documentary considers the impact of dance on the health of young people by visiting a number of successful dance and health projects, such as DAZL in Leeds, DanceXchange in Birmingham, the NRG projects from Hampshire Dance and Trinity Laban and the Dance South West/Department of Health partnership.
'You can see from these brilliant examples that it is really it is really important that we continue to fund youth dance and heath work. If we work together can play a role in securing a healthier and happier future for young people in England.' Camilla Dallerup
'This is the tip of the iceberg' Dr. Emma Redding
'The big health issues that are around, obesity and mental health, they aren't going away. In fact they are getting worse, I deal with a whole generation of adults who are literally physically unable to have any quality of life because they are so overweight or obese. This is what we are up against and I think that dance has a unique ability to tackle this because dance is a lot of fun, people can enjoy themselves doing it.’ Jan Burkhart, Founder of Dazl.
