CONTEMPORARY TEACHING EXPERIENCE
I have extensive experience teaching all levels from children to professional dancers. I have trained dance students at Trinity Laban (London), University of Ulster and Belfast Metropolitain College, and been a guest teacher in various other dance colleges and professional companies. I have taught dance lovers of all abilities as well as those with disabilities. I have enjoyed teaching dance to all ages, from toddlers to senior citizens and everything in between... because dance is for everyone!!
My class draws from my own training (in Limón-based technique and releasing work, with a few other influences). I aim to help dancers move fully and freely, with fluidity of motion, clarity of alignment, and a good use of weight and breath.
I can deliver creative dance workshops to all ages and abilities if you would like to have me visit your school, community group or even a hen/stag event. In a dance workshop, people will learn age-appropriate dance skills, then explore their own creativity. I have taught in mainstream schools, special schools, community centres, senior citizens groups, women's prisons and in a rehab centre for ex-street girls in Brazil.
I have experience directing rehearsals with various professional dance companies, namely BareBones, Maiden Voyage and Springs Dance Company. I was also co-director of Toot-Toot Productions in Belfast, making work for young children. I enjoy being an outside eye and using my experience of being a dancer and movement analyst to help polish and shape performance work on both professional performers and keen amateurs. As well as dancers, I also have experience coaching actors in movement.
