Dance project for S2 pupil workshop on mental health
A dance project to help young people open up about mental health is being held in Tayside schools this month.
How We Feel is being delivered as part of a partnership between NHS Tayside and Dundee and Angus College dance students, led by course co-ordinator Lisa Bibby.
The target audience is mainly S2 pupils, who often struggle with the transition to being a teenager and its associated pressures.
Pupils first watch a performance, then take part in workshops where they can learn parts of the dance, discuss issues and are able to ask questions of health experts.
The project has been running for the past 18 years and is said to be an ongoing success.
Dundee and Angus College’s second year HNC Contemporary Dance students are seen in rehearsals for the How We Feel performance.
