Helping women affected by cancer to reconnect with themselves, through dance.

An exhibition highlighting the importance of dance in cancer care.

Move Dance Feel is a an award winning initiative, with a mission to address inequality in cancer care by making dance available to all women living with and beyond cancer – any type of cancer, at any stage.

With 3 million people living with cancer in the UK, predicted to rise to 4 million by 2030, cancer is now viewed as a long term health condition – disabling more women per year than men. The side effects of treatment often result in complex and prolonged difficulties, yet there is little access to holistic or ongoing support.

Dancing is powerful in its ability to help people feel connected, move through limiting beliefs, and find relief from the seriousness of cancer – as one participant explains, pain is replaced with joy”.

The creative support that Move Dance Feel offers is truly life enhancing, and leads to improvements in women’s physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing.

This collection of images, films, testimonials and statistics reflect the breadth and impact of Move Dance Feel’s work, spanning seven years.
