Book now

Programmed by Siobhan Davies Studios.


Develop confidence and articulacy in your dancing, through explorative, responsive and organically devised movement. In this accommodating class, the teacher will lead participants to discover and create as they move, supporting personal expression and improvisation.

“I love learning about movement in a more fundamental way; challenging my preconceptions about what dance and choreography is each session” 

Participant

This class draws on principles of Release technique, emphasising flow, breath and connection with the floor. Each session begins with a warm-up to awaken the senses and bring awareness to the space and our bodies – and then playfully you will explore dance material that builds to dynamic sequences.

Choreography Extension 
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 our talented teachers.

For both beginner and intermediate levels to support confident and articulate dancing.
