BBC 'Dancing to Happiness'
In December 2018, former ballerina Dame Darcey Bussell presented a BBC documentary ‘Dancing to Happiness’ which investigated why dance, more than any other exercise improves mood and behaviour.
In the programme Kevin Edward Turner, Co- Artistic director of Company Chameleon leads a series of workshops with young people from mental health charity 42nd Street and comments:
'It shows the transformative power of dance and how it is a positive force for everyone involved – physically, emotionally, socially and psychologically. It’s engaging viewing as you get to see the shift and transition that the young people make. As their ability to engage with their feelings and express them through dance increases, so does their confidence and self-belief, and this is so inspiring to see.'
