Research Focus

My research interests are maternity and dance, maternal and obstetric biomechanics, physical activity during pregnancy, feminism, dance studies and modern political theory. 

My current research investigates experiences of maternity in dance, and how a dedicated system of training might ensure safe physiological practice for freelance, maternal dancers. Consequently, I hope to support the normalization of the aesthetic and presence of maternal dancers within a dance training context, and thus contribute to normalizing their participation in a professional, performance context. The research will be Practice-as-Research (PaR), and the process requires interdisciplinary research across dance and midwifery. My thesis will offer sectoral analysis within the theoretical context of maternal and feminist studies, offering principles for the facilitation of maternal dancers’ needs within the UK dance sector.
