Survey on the use of at-home dance resources

Researchers at the University of Manchester are working with community dance providers to investigate the use of at-home resources while access to in-person dance classes is suspended as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Survey: Investigating the use of at-home dance resources

Evidence shows that participating in dance can offer both physical and non-physical benefits to older people and those with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s. In recent times, especially in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increase in availability and use of at-home dance resources. Organisations providing community dance programmes have been working quickly to develop videos and online sessions to enable people to practice dance-based activities while unable to attend in-person classes.

They would like to hear from people who have attended dance classes or used at-home dance resources, as well as people who are interested in using these resources. This research aims to examine how older people may be able to benefit from online/at-home dance, and to help improve the further development of resources.

The online survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. For further information and to take part in the survey, please see the following link:
