“…….As a dancer, in a very elitist world, I was trained to appreciate technical accomplishment, often suppressing artistry. Facilitating the Converge courses has lead to a re-evaluation around my aesthetic beliefs of dance and I see beauty and sophistication emerge from individuals in every workshop……”
“My journey with ‘Out of Character’ has been an inspirational one….”
“I’ve been re-inspired, watching this group of individuals, through the discipline I love, come together and express their own individuality and creativity, to startling and sometimes beautiful ends…if I’ve learnt anything about the arts and mental health it’s that they can be a way of connecting and integrating into the world people who find traditional ways of doing this difficult.”
“I have developed skills around planning and delivering teaching.
It helped me consolidate and reinforced my learning from the first two years of my degree. Discussing working processes has supported reflection of my own practice.”
