~Nearly three decades ago, American singer Madonna reinvented herself once again with the 1990 dance anthem ‘Vogue’. The music video was synonymous for it’s rhythmic dance techniques and  choreographed routines.

During this time the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA) began. It had already spent a year teaching dance formulas to interested ones when ‘Vogue’ was hitting the dance floors.

A special event has been designed to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of this Movement. UCLAN are hosting a three - day symposium. It’s an opportunity for graduates, students, staff  to come together for the first time, to collectively acknowledge what UCLAN  has to offer, and make our  presence felt in the wider world.

The aim of the symposium is to profile practice and research inquiries being carried out by practitioners and graduates. This will be developed through workshops, provocations and presentations.

The areas of inquiry will focus on the following six:-

  1. Health
  2.  Wellbeing
  3.  Social-Prescribing
  4.  Education
  5.  Social care/other community contexts
  6.   Provide sharing opportunities for the impact of training upon personal life trajectories.

Keynote speakers will include Jane Okondo (ISMETA UK, IBMT), Helen Poynor (Tamalpa UK, Walk of Life, UK), Joan Davis (Origins, Eire), Lian Wilson (Tamalpa UK), Mary Abrams (UCLan, Moving Body Resources USA), Paul Beaumont (IBMT), Penny Collinson (UCLan) and Tim Lamford (UCLan).
