teaching and lecturing
Somatic process and Skinner Releasing Technique as access to new subtleties of feeling, allowing, clarity and resonance - to support all forms of dance and, ultimately, the “dance of life” (Joan Skinner 2006).
I teach professional dancers, in conservatoires and universities, in communities and in arts-and-health, both locally and internationally.
New SRT classes in central London Sept-Oct 2023 - in partnership with Intercultural Roots - arts for health and social change https://www.interculturalroots.org/product/skinner-releasing-technique-september-october-with-lizzy-le-quesne
I aim to develop a heightened creative sense of awareness, freedom and presence; safe, empowering and sustainable technical skills; enact somatic encounter between inner and outer worlds; enlist the articulate body into dialogue with space, desire, personal history and the world; and support the dancer towards sensitive embodied agency and play - in a deeply embedded relationality.
