Upcoming Teaching

If you’re interested in organising some teaching, feel free to send me a message via the contact page.

Dates below run furthest into the future first.


Monday 14th – Thursday 17th October. TripSpace, London.

11:00 – 12:30 £6 Drop-in

A detailed and dynamic class drawing on principals from aikido, running, Steve Paxton’s Material for the Spine, flying low and releasing techniques. We’ll explore ways of organising our bodies and directing our attention to dance both softly and sharply with ease, sensitivity and power. Through duet improvisation, movement studies and longer phrases we’ll dig into techniques of moving and the craft of dancing.


Wednesday 9th – Friday 11th October 2019. Groundwork Pro, Cardiff.

Various times (See link below).

We’ll be taking a look at floorwork, through the material of Flying Low. This is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency… and pleasure! We’ll take a detailed look at the material, breaking it down to find functions that work for each of us, then we’ll put it back together for some full-bodied dancing!

I highly recommend long trousers (within reason!) and covered shoulders.

A chance to take a longer course! We’ll be taking a look at floorwork, through the material of Flying Low.

Sunday 18th August 2019, Milton Keynes.

10:00 – 16:30

A whole day workshop.

Starting the day with a detailed and dynamic class drawing on principals from aikido, running, Steve Paxton’s Material for the Spine, flying low and releasing techniques.

We’ll explore ways of organising our bodies and directing our attention to dance both softly and sharply with ease, sensitivity and power. Through duet improvisation, movement studies and longer phrases we’ll dig into the technique of moving and the craft of dancing.

The morning class will feed into an afternoon of instant compostion; unfolding movements, pathways, phrases, stillnesses – from walking to full-bodied dancing – all the while connecting and corresponding with one another, growing a rich shared ground for our dancing to grow from.
