Holding space for parenting dance artists

Webinar on survey outcomes “Parenthood and Dance”

In the past months the re_dance platform has been working on a Germany-wide online survey on the topic of parenthood and dance, which was addressed to all parenting professionals in the field of dance, both in freelance and employed work relationships. 

Up until now our work was mainly inspired by qualitative data collected by Katelyn Skelley through direct Oral History interviews with various parenting dance artists over the past 4 years. Thus, the aim of this survey research was to collect more quantitative data to be used for formulating concrete proposals for politicians, administrations and the dance industry. 

This time Katelyn collaborated with Rosa Daiger von Gleichen – empirical social researcher and expert on work-family balance at the University of Oxford and Goethe University, Frankfurt – to design the first version of such a survey. 

We are happy to announce that we are at the end of the survey process and would like to invite you to join the online webinar in which we will present main outcomes and open up different conversations to collectively expand our information pool. 

The webinar will take place via Zoom on Sunday, 4th December at 16:00 – 17:30.

Passcode: 602089

We invite everyone who is interested in the topic even if you have not done the survey and we also encourage non-parents to join us as we also aim to promote mutual understanding for each other’s situation. 

The three main topics of this webinar will be: scheduling (both work and childcare), how finances play a role and travel & touring. There will be different breakout rooms to facilitate more concentrated conversations. 

Please feel free to join with food, drinks, children, with/ without camera or enter at the time that is suitable for your weekend schedule. Invite your friends and colleagues to join you in this conversation. 

The webinar will be held in English. 

We look forward to spending a delightful and informative Sunday afternoon with each of you!


Best regards,
