Move-Assure is underpinned by scientific theory, evidence and practice. An understanding of the science of dance and wellbeing is vitally important to us, as the creators of Move-Assure.

The following Move-Assure Science resources have been curated by Dr Peter Lovatt, our Director of Dance Psychology, who has over 30 years experience working in education and research.
