We (George Adams & Helen Gould) established LPM Dance in 2011 through a joint ambition to create new dance initiatives for diverse audiences in a wide variety of settings. As an artists led organisation we strive to place art, the artist, and the audience at the heart of our work. We enjoy being responsive to new opportunities, enabling us to enrich and further the understanding of our work in a broad range of context.
Our practice promotes an inclusive ethos which provides opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to experience the power of dance.
We use movement and dance as a tool for collaboration, education and social change.
We are driven by our artistic and creative ambitions to develop innovative projects and performance work.
Research shows dance can support a wide range of health conditions by improving symptoms and supporting general well-being. Our expertise in health and wellbeing practice informs many of our projects. We have specialist training in dance & Parkinson's, dance & dementia and dance & movement psychotherapy. George is also a trained craniosacral therapist and yoga therapist.
An inclusive ethos informs our work. This extends to the other artists, dance companies and community organisations we work with.
LPM Dance is an artists led, not-for-profit organisation with charitable aims.
We are supported by our Board of non-executive directors.
The dance classes make a significant difference to physical symptoms [of Parkinson's] ....They also boost my confidence. The class is carefully crafted and Helen makes movements which I would find hard on my own much easier.
