Story

We need ongoing support for the TIRED Movement to exist.

We need to improve diversity, equality, equity and representation in dance education and the wider industry.

Pledging to support TIRED will hep us achieve our mission and implement positive change beyond 2023 for future generations to live their lives without the barriers and challenges many performers are currently facing.

TIRED are on a mission to drive the important changes that need to be made in the dance industry. Racial injustice and inequality are still significant challenges that global majority dancers face every day, and we are TIRED!

For decades, global majority dancers across the world continue to experience stereotyping, tokenism, racism, issues of cultural appropriation, AND are consistently gaslighted when raising concerns of discrimination. Learning the correct history of dance, understanding the important influence black culture has had on the popular dance style we see today and wearing the correct dancewear that compliments your skin, are all part of the many things that need addressing.

TIRED co-founder Stacey Green has worked tirelessly to forge partnerships with the leading Performing Arts Colleges and industry professionals to develop a sustainable framework that will be the first of its kind to regulate representation in vocational training. We are so proud to be working with some of the leading colleges in the UK, who will collaborate together for the first time in history to achieve our outcomes:

BIRD College (Kent), ICTheatre (Brighton, Manchester), Laine Theatre Arts (Epsom), London Studio Centre (London), Performers College (Birmingham, Essex), READ College (Reading), ShockOut Arts (Manchester) and the list keeps growing!

The TIRED Movement was founded in 2020, during the global pandemic, as a social enterprise (not-for-profit) to raise awareness about racial injustice within the industry.

The movement has gained huge momentum and support from the dance community and has made great strides towards implementing change across all sectors!

Our mission is to unite the dance community with a seamless line of communication that both educates and motivates teachers of our future generation. Creating a movement that is inclusive, informative and provides a safe space for honest conversations along with inciting regular observations of the appropriate delivery of inclusive dance education.

Are you TIRED? Sign up to our Newsletter!

The TIRED Movement urges anyone that cares about the future of dance education and the wellbeing of the next generation to support our quest to drive the change and ensure that the landscape of dance education is fully inclusive and equitable!

We need to improve representation in examining boards, adjudication federations, faculty members and talented performers from underrepresented and marginalised groups.

WE NEED YOU!!

    👑 Meet William Dorsey Swann, the OG drag queen and gay liberation activist born into slavery in 1858. He organized fabulous balls in D.C., where formerly enslaved men danced in satin and silk. Despite arrests and imprisonment, Swann fought for the LGBTQ+ community's right to gather, becoming the first American to do so. ✊🏾 A true trailblazer and icon, Swann's legacy lives on as the original queen, drag mother, and activist. 🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏾🙌🏿 Check out our most recent Instagram post here: https://www.instagram.com/p/C6t34eurOyf/?img_index=1

    So inspiring to hear from the talented Sol & Sayida @sol.syida and their experience as passionate Latin dancers & practitioners of capoeira, and the challenges they have faced in their journey. From expectations around appearance, to the uncomfortable comments and pressures they constantly face to conform to a standard which erases their ethnic characteristics. Thank you another for continually advocating for diversity within dance, and for sending such a powerful message to find strength in your beautiful features than to conform.
