Teaching is an essential part of my research and practice in movement and performance, and I teach widely in the UK and internationally.
I teach, choreograph and lead choreographic projects in dance conservatoires, universities and colleges across the UK and abroad.
I also teach at festivals, for independent organisations, and for dance and theatre companies.
Workshops & Classes
I teach Contact Improvisation based partnering work; improvisational movement studies and composition for performance in a variety of contexts.
My teaching is about opening a space for each participant to explore their own curiosity and potential as a mover.
I have taught for companies including Siobhan Davies Dance; EDGE; Berne Ballet; Urban Playground; Carte Blanche, Skånes Dansteater, Verve; Phoenix Dance Theatre; Candoco and Scottish Dance Theatre amongst others.
I’ve been commissioned to make performances with students at colleges including:
The Place, Laban, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Coventry University, University of Chichester, The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at Limerick University, and University of Brighton.
I have also taught workshops and classes at all of the above and many others including Rambert School of Dance, University of Winchester, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, SNDO (Amsterdam), Roehampton Institute; the Modern Dance department of Amsterdam School of the Arts.
Projects in educational institutions have included choreographing performance works and facilitating students in the creation of their own work, as well as teaching classes and workshops and giving lecture demonstrations.
