Classes + Therapies [+]

Siobhan Davies Dance, Contemporary Dance

Contemporary Dance

These Wednesday night classes draw on principles of Release technique, emphasising flow, breath, connection with the floor, body awareness and co-ordination.

The classes accommodate both beginner and intermediate levels, with exercises to support confident and articulate dancing. Each week begins with a warm-up to awaken the senses and tune awareness within the body and to the space, and then playfully you will explore material that builds to dynamic dance sequences.

Stay for an optional, additional 30 minutes to delve into Choreography. Using movement phrases from the 1.5 hour class this extra time will enable you to play, tinker and craft dance into choreography through creative tasks guided by Laura.

Laura Glaser

Laura Glaser has been teaching weekly adult evening classes in contemporary dance at Siobhan Davies Studios for the past 7 years. She also teaches professional dancers and has taught experiential anatomy and contemporary dance for undergraduate students at Trinity Laban music and dance conservatoire since her graduation at the former in 2004.

As a freelancer Laura performs in various works with and by fellow dance artists, choreographers, visual artists and collectives mostly in London and partly in Switzerland, her country of origin.

Her interest in dance education has led her to complete a MA in Performance: Dance (independent research) at Chichester University and while she continues to be involved in teaching practices, she is currently interested in developing improvisational structures for movement practices and performance platforms investigating the emergence of dialogue both physical and verbal, personal and universal, deep and playful.
