Ballet and the Brain

  • Jim Cascarina

It's often said that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert, but what happens in a ballet dancer's brain when they learn choreography? Royal Ballet dancer Gemma Pitchley-Gale is joined by neuroscientists, healthcare professionals and psychologists to find out how performers learn, and the techniques they can employ to improve their performance. I worked closely with the director to produce the supporting animated content.
