Summer Dance Party

Summer Dance Party

Do you want to know how swing frees up memory and tango triggers creativity? Are you burning to learn how barn dancing boosts puzzle-solving powers, ballroom hormones influence social identity, and hardcore rave relates to intimate attraction?

In the Summer Dance Party 2017, dance psychologist Dr. Peter Lovatt will teach you about key ideas in cognitive psychology by showing you how to bust some moves. From the nature of memory to how your brain controls movement, Peter will teach you dances that illustrate and explain key ideas in psychology – moving your bodies and minds.

Peter will teach you the moves for a new routine throughout the session, get you dancing and share what he knows from lab research: how different moves affect your bodily chemistry, creativity and emotions. Whether you’re a total dance novice who’s never been near a tea dance, or an experienced Latin mover, you’ll learn new moves and discover the surprising science behind them.

The workshop is strongly recommended for people who think they can’t dance.
