Movement Research Studies Project: Integrating Parenthood and Art Practice at A.R.T. New York/South Oxford Space. October 22, 2011.
Anna and Rebecca led a discussion on the topic of parenting and its influence on one's creative life. They posed the questions: How can the journey of parenthood inspire and be additive to an artist's lifestyle? Are there parenting challenges specific to the dance community? Is there anything we can do as a community to better support one another? Tips were shared on how to find balance between our professional and private lives. Participants included new and veteran parents as well as those contemplating parenthood , and those simply interested in this topic.
Studies Project is an artist-curated series of panel discussions, performances, and/or other formats that focus on provocative and timely issues of aesthetics and philosophy in the intersection of dance and social politics, confronting and instigated by the dance and performance community.
After this discussion, Anna and Rebecca started a google group intended to support dance parents called “Dance Artist Parent,” and would like to invite interested individuals to join. You can find them by searching google groups for “dance artist parent” or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
