From performance anxiety to perfectionism, from goal setting to eating behaviours, in this course you will learn about 13 mental skills for dancers. Understanding your mental skills can help you become the dancer you’ve always dreamed of being.
Mental skills sit at the heart of human psychology. That’s why, in this course, we begin with an introduction to four areas of human psychology.
Dance Psychology is the study of dance and dancers from a scientific, psychological, perspective. When we apply dance psychology to mental skills for dancers, its aim is to help people be the best dancers they can be.
Mental Skills for Dancers is written and presented by Dr Peter Lovatt. Peter has written two books on the psychology of dance and he taught several courses on Dance Psychology and Mental Skills to students and staff at the Royal Ballet School.
