On Wednesday 17 May 2023, we will be marking mental health awareness week with a conversation between Tim Arthur, RAD Chief Executive and Steven McRae, Principal of The Royal Ballet and RAD Ambassador. The official theme for the awareness week this year, as set by the Mental Health Foundation, is ‘anxiety‘

Tim and Steven will have an open and frank discussion about mental health within the dance world. Drawing on Steven’s experiences over many years of huge highs and devastating lows, and Tim’s experience as a psychotherapist, the two will look at the mental resilience needed to overcome adversity and maintain good mental health in the dance industry.

This will be a hybrid event with the opportunity to attend in-person at RAD headquarters or join online. The ticket price for in-person attendees includes refreshments and an opportunity to network after the event.

Who should attend?

This conversation will be of particular interest to dance teachers for examining their own challenges, as well as recognising those of their students, when it comes to promoting and maintaining mental wellbeing.
