STEP TOGETHER PHOTO COMPETITION
STEP TOGETHER Photography Award aims to hep raise awareness of the benefits of dancing for mental health and well-being. Research conducted by Dance Psychologist Dr Peter Lovatt reveals how happy hormones – including dopamine and serotonin – produced during dancing stay in the body up to a week from the last dance.
Whether one likes dancing or not, rhythm is our lifeline! The rhythm of a heartbeat, the rhythm of breathing and the rhythm of walking is present in all of us.
In an effort to promote mental health, STEP TOGETHER invites participants to submit images that capture the spirit of dancing – any style!
Your photographic entry
STEP TOGETHER invites you to submit a photograph that captures the happiness when dancing, moving your body to music. Send us a photo of yourself, your flatmate(s) – your mum and dad, neighbours – dancing alone or in a group. Dancing in the rain, on stage or in the street. Square dancing, straight dancing, gay dancing. All dancing.
A panel of judges will select the photographs that best interpret the movement and mood of the dancer(s). The work of twenty finalists will be showcased in an exhibition in London – location TBC – with the announcement of the winner to coincide with World Mental Health Day, 10th October.
