WELCOME EVERYONE!

We are Sky, Tara and Alma. Together we are the Junior Ambassadors for the AWA DANCE Charity (Advancing Women's Aspirations with Dance).
Thank you for taking time out of your day to fill out this 10 minute survey on body image within the dance sector. This survey is for anyone who identifies as a girl aged 11-18 and attends any dance classes on any style across the UK. We are planning to use the information you share with us for research purposes to find a way to unpick the stigma around body image in the dance world, specifically for girls.
 
WHY DO WE DO THIS?
The reason why we have decided to research this topic is because even though body image within the dance sector affects everyone it mainly affects girls . Dancers lose their self worth and passion resulting in enjoying dancing less and generally feeling worse due to this toxic culture.
 
YOUR VOICE MATTERS
To do this we need your experiences and suggestions to be able to make a positive impact . We want to find a way to make a change and find solutions to ending the stigma around body image in dance . Overall empowering the whole dance community to make it a safe and enjoyable sector for all.
Your voice means a lot to us and the more voices we gather the more change we can make to find solutions around this matter. Your identity will remain anonymous and anything you can fill out will greatly help
