I prioritise people and art at the heart of my practice. I strive to provide inclusive, joyful, collaborative and non-hierarchical learning and making experiences that draw on creative play, improvisation, and predominantly non-codified movement. My teaching, artistic and research practices co-create one another, working across other disciplines including dance, movement, writing and dialogue.
I currently work as a Lecturer in Dance Education at the Royal Academy of Dance teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in dance teacher education. I deliver on modules that cover dance pedagogy and choreography, with a focus on community practice, creativity and inclusion. I also supervise undergraduate and postgraduate research projects. I am also teach on the Postgraduate Diploma for Community Dance at Trinity Laban.
Previously I have been fortunate to teach in a variety of settings and contexts in HE, schools and the community, working with diverse groups, young and old, and with people with learning difficulties and physical impairments.
All of these people and experiences have nurtured my work as an ‘artist-educator-researcher.’
