Sarah enjoys working with swings and spirals; fluid, flowing and lyrical movement to explore and encourage physical expression, whilst also developing power and strength through exploring elasticity within movement. Her teaching style uses imagery and metaphor whilst actively exploring and encouraging musicality.
Sarah began dancing at the age of four at The Place before going on to train at London Contemporary Dance School, graduating in 2003. Since graduating she has worked with a number of choreographers including Russell Maliphant, Jan de Schynkel, Martin Lawrence and Janet Rendell of Cedar Dance Animations. She became a teacher for the Classes & Courses department at The Place in 2002 and currently teaches across London including on the CAT programme at The Place.
This Level 1 class is for participants with some knowledge of contemporary dance and over a years’ dance experience. You will look at a more developed dance vocabulary and a greater sense of body awareness in the space. Classes will work with longer phrases aimed at increasing physicality, performativity and musicality. Working with a more codified structure, you will prepare the body for an increase in activity throughout the class.
