Award: Movement Against Bullying Workshops
Winner: Laura Dredger Location: London
Our education Leader Laura Dredger with the support of a dance therapist and child psychologist, recently devised a highly successful movement workshop that investigates, visually and physically, the impact of bullying. Small groups of students work with Laura to express what bullying means to them and together find ways, through movement, to create positive outcomes. Laura skilfully navigates each class so that all students come away with a new and positive perspective, with empathy and compassion.
