Aside from my own Authentic Artist programme, I have many years experience running workshops for adults and young people. From 2004-2008 I was Associate Director of Youth Music Theatre UK and directed projects for them on a freelance basis up to 2014.
In all my workshops I support creative aspirations. I encourage experimentation and innovation and ensure that risk-taking and mistake-making are seen as valuable elements in the learning process. My teaching tends to focus on improvisation, physical theatre and expressive movement, and often involves questioning boundaries and sharing experiences openly with one another. The creative development of each individual is my mission and creating a safe space within which to work is central.
