About Healthier Dancer Days

Healthier Dancer Days are Dance Ireland’s series of talks, workshops and presentations focusing on health and wellbeing for dancers. This year we focus on physical and mental resilience in the life of a dancer.

We open up with a discussion on navigating failure versus perfectionism through the ups and downs of a career in dance. Dance psychologist Terry Hyde will chair this discussion with contributions from Rachel Ni Bhraonáin (dancer/choreographer, Ireland), Emma Jayne Park (choreographer, Scotland), Liz Roche (choreographer, Ireland) and Shelby Williams (soloist, Royal Ballet Flanders, US/Belgium)

Join Terry Hyde, Lucia Kickham and Khyle Eccles on the following days as they introduce tools and methodologies for mental and physical self-care, with workshops on mental health strategies, creating a healthy environment in the studio, and maximising your physical training in and out of the studio.
