Abstract

This paper provides a descriptive account of ongoing action research by Small Things Dance Collective, into the effects of dance improvisation, refined touch and somatic practice with children on the Neuromedical and Oncology wards of Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool, UK. The paper considers how the non-judgemental and inclusive approach of site sensitive dance improvisers is particularly appropriate and successful in a clinical setting.
