Ep.85 – Reboot guest episode with Dr Peter Lovatt (AKA Dr Dance!)

February 11, 2024

As they take a quick break to record new episodes, The Occupational Philosophers wanted to reshare one of their favourite guests and their very first with Dr. Peter Lovatt. Dr Lovatt is a Dance Psychologist, multi TED speaker and best selling author, who through his work on the psychology of movement and dance, is more widely known as ‘Dr. Dance’! 

Listen in as Peter shares:

  • 3 top tips for everyday living from his new book ‘The Dance Cure’
  • How teams and organisations can use movement to fuel innovation & creativity
  • How individuals can ‘move to improve’!

They also explore:

  • Why dance and movement is fundamentally about communication 
  • What type of movement is best to help your children revise for their exams?
  • What stops us dancing (apart from when we’re drunk at a wedding…)?
  • How school shaped Peter’s life and success….it’s quite a journey
  • Whether movement is a “gateway drug” to dancing…….

And as ever, the Occupational Philosophers will also engage in some (not so serious) ‘Thought Experiments’ which delve into topics such as “Did someone really say that?” and “What dance should I do if I get mugged?”.
