On Balance: Panel Discussion with artists and scientists


This looks like a very interesting session for dance teachers to attend. I am hoping to go myself – I have a particular fondness for the De La Warr Pavilion as I ran social dance classes there for a number of years and on fabulous, warm sunny evenings we would dance on the terrace outside – a wonderful setting close to the sea. Lets hope the weather is kind so we can enjoy being outside on the roof terrace for this panel discussion.

Saturday 21 July 2012 at 6.30pm at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex


Quentin Cooper (presenter of BBC Radio 4’s weekly The Material World, the UK’s most listened to science programme) will chair this special event taking place on the De La Warr roof terrace in proximity to Richard Wilson’s Hang on a Minute Lads, I’ve got an idea… 

This lively chat-show style debate will consider the physiology of balance and poise, including discussion of the aesthetic qualities of sport/ dance (grace and presence) before moving on to consider neurological skill development in athletes.  Featuring a dance performance by Subathra Subramaniam, and contributions from neuro-scientist Morten Kringelbach, Rambert’s scientist-in-residence  Nicky Clayton, as well as dance-scientist Elsa Bradley and Everything Flows artists susan pui san lok and Dryden Goodwin, the discussion will be followed by an opportunity to meet the speakers.

Tickets £12 (£10 concessions), including a complimentary glass of wine
