Teaching and Community

I work in a number of contexts with different communities and people, from children to adults, exploring what it is to empower through movement and performance. My approach is inclusive, equal and creative for all. I have particular experience of working with young people and adults with learning disabilities.

Current projects include work with Blink Dance Theatre, Hackney Shed, Mencap Hammersmith, Flux Dance Theatre, Parasol Dance.

BLINK DANCE THEATRE

I am a Director  BLINK DANCE THEATRE and teach regular sensory movement classes and workshops in London in schools and higher education settings. We have just completed a National Tour of ‘FOUR CORNERS’ and will take it to Romania at the end of this year.

PARASOL DANCE

I work regularly with Parasol Dance – a charity which provides inclusive play opportunities for children and young people in Oxford. Our most recent performance was a fundraiser for Ark-T Centre in Oxford.

 

YOUNG WOMEN’S WORK

My work with young women and those who identify as women begins with their subjective experience of the body, moves forward to encourage women to reflect critically on their position in society, and engages them in making experimental performances. I work with a number of Primary Schools and youth club settings, leading 10 week projects which explore creative contemporary dance and choreography. These projects culminate in a performance. Most recently, I have worked with Pegasus Theatre Oxfordshire Youth and Oxford Youth Dance.
