In the final episode of our series, Mingjia talks with dance psychologist Dr. Peter Lovatt.
Dr Peter Lovatt is a Dance Psychologist. Peter has spent his life thinking about, teaching and writing about how humans are transformed by movement. Dr Peter Lovatt is the co-founder of the Movement in Practice (MiP) Academy, a specialist provider of education in the psychology of movement and dance. Peter spent twenty years working in university research labs. He set up the first Dance Psychology Lab in 2008, from where he studied how movement changes the way people think and solve problems, how it changes social interaction and increases pro-social behaviour, and how movement changes people’s feelings. Peter’s new book, The Dance Cure, was published by Short Books in the UK in 2020. The Dance Cure is being published in the USA by HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins.
