Dancing into Retirement

Just Festival at St John's Church, Edinburgh, EH2 4BJ
Fri 16th August 2019
Chair: The Reverend Paul Burrows (Church of Scotland)
Panelists: Zoe van Zwanenberg (Chair of Dancers Career Development), Morag Deyes (Artistic Director, Dance Base: Scotland's National Centre for Dance)

Many professional dancers dedicate their early life to achieving their dream of reaching greatness in their field. Once physical abilities are affected by injury or age, there seem to be limited options to continue a career in the limelight. Our panel will share their personal stories of how dance has affected their life choices and discuss routes to achieving professional satisfaction once retired from a dance career.
