Postgraduate Diploma in Dance training and education
Role and responsibilities:
“I am always interested in creating and working with a playful and curious approach to movement, physicality and mind set. Curiosity drives and inspires the search for movement, enabling the discovery for full movement potential the body offers. Creating awareness of the internal space, how our being and moving can be enriched by images to encourage freedom, spaciousness and expression into movement. Communicating through movement whilst connecting with space and people invites humanity, vibrancy and alertness into dancing. Involving the whole self with the work.”
