Our board is only one collective example out of the many pioneers that have developed the field of dance and somatics in the UK over the last 30 years. We recognise there are many pioneers across the UK. Sometimes pioneers work quietly in the community. Other pioneers are more public, sharing their work through training courses, performances, book publications, journal articles and conferences.  Our board combines expertise from within Higher Education and from free-lance independent contexts. We value both contexts and recognise the intersecting and spiraling histories and herstories within the field. Some of these histories and herstories are firmly documented, while others are yet to be written.
