Dr Lucie Clements is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Chichester and a Chartered Psychologist. While completing her PhD Lucie began working freelance to deliver workshops and consultancy for dance students and schools, and now runs a business as dance psychologist along her academic position, supporting dancers across the world, including India, Hong Kong, and the USA. Lucie has published in journals such as Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts and Journal of Sports, Exercise and Performance Psychology. Her research interests are diverse within psychology, but she is particularly interested in the interplay between the environment and the individual in developing a rounded healthy dancer, not just a technically "perfect" performer.
