Moving with Mental Health – ADA Online Workshop

March 5, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Over the past year, our dance community has encountered shifts, shutdowns, pivots, opportunities, and losses. With these changes, and an uncertain future for many artists and businesses, mental health and well-being are at the forefront of our conversations.

Open to all Alberta dancers and educators!

Join us on Friday, March 5th at 9am MST via Zoom for Moving with Mental Health.

Mental skills educator, Lauren Ritchie, will facilitate an interactive discussion and Q&A session with renowned dance councillors, Terry Hyde (MA, MBACP) and Natalka Lewis (MA Counselling Psychology, BA Dance).

Facilitator Lauren Ritchie is a mental skills trainer and dance educator from Calgary. Terry Hyde is a psychotherapist/counsellor and retired professional dancer from the UK. Natalka Lewis is a professional dancer from Calgary and founder of Luminare Dance Company. All are extremely passionate about mental wellness for the artform of dance.

We will talk about:

  • Mental health symptoms
  • Healthy mental practices
  • Anxiety & Stress
  • Resilience

But, most importantly, we want to talk about what feels important and helpful to you as you navigate your mental health.

Register for this free online event by emailing info@abdancealliance.ab.ca. A Zoom link will be provided closer to the date. We will be capping this event at 100 participants, so make sure to register early!

Dance community: If you feel that you are in need of immediate counsellor support please feel free to contact Natalka Lewis directly or alternatively Dr. Blessyl Buan.
