Activity: Public engagement and outreach › Workshop and other training
Knowledge that is specific to dance is often difficult to identify and articulate in words; and yet many of the soft skills found inside contemporary dance practices are regarded as the most important skills needed currently in society.
These can include creativity, flexibility, dealing with complexity and uncertainty, understanding and appreciating differences, and patience and perseverance.
The event enabled dance artists to discover their soft skills. Participants explored them physically, gained understanding of how to articulate them in their practice in a workshop environment, and found out more about the ‘Soft Skills in Dance’ guidebook from its lead authors (Sara Houston and Monica Gillette).
