Wondering what to wear as an adult in dance classes? Find a few tips here 

*****

Since September 2017, I've been teaching regular non-syllabus adult ballet classes.
Please scroll to the bottom of this page for my teaching calendar.

Drawing on my training in the French School of ballet, I strive to share the joy of movement and the subtleties of intention through movement.
My favourite technical foci are:
  • placement and posture;
  • presentation and articulation of the feet and lower legs; 
  • fluidity and breath in the movements of the upper body; 
  • and precision and clarity in the orientation of the body in space.
I teach  classes on:
Mondays 13:15 - 14:45 at St Matthews' Parish Centre
Marlborough Road, Grandpont, OX1 4LW.
This is an Adult mixed-level class (from Improvers to Intermediate/Advanced)
Maximum number of students: 10 
[Since September 2020, taking over from lovely Karen Sellick]


Tuesdays 18:15 - 19:45 at Mortimer Hall
next to the Old Marston Library 50 Oxford Road, Old Martson, OX3 0PH.
This is an Adult mixed-level class (from Improvers to Intermediate/Advanced).
Maximum number of students: 8 




I also teach on  Fridays for Oxford Academy of Dance 
at the Wolvercote Village Hall 
1, Wolvercote Green, Wolvercote OX2 8AB
18:00 - 19:15 Adult Improvers
19:30 - 21:00 Adult Intermediate
Maximum number of  (in-person) students: 9

PLEASE NOTE: 
  • These classes resume on 9th October 2020 
  • Changes in time and location from our usual schedule have been made to ensure your safety.  
  • These will be hybrid classes, so if you're interested in joining any of these classes remotely, feel free to get in touch to receive the Webex link.

I have further been teaching occasional non-syllabus ballet classes for established dance schools in Oxford since 2013 (mostly doing replacements, on demand):

Currently training at Swindon Dance for ISTD's Diploma in Dance Pedagogy (a Level 6 degree with a focus on creativity in teaching and learning in education and community settings, and on choreography), and drawing upon my own creative practices, I am happy to further design and offer creative movement workshops for youth and community groups
