ID’s adult drop-in classes offer a wide range of contemporary, somatic and improvisation practices and are led by internationally renowned teaching artists in the large roof space at Siobhan Davies Studios, 30 weeks a year.
Regular classes include daily Morning Classes for experienced dancers and Monday Night Improvisation which is open to everyone.
These classes enable a wide range of practices, ideas and approaches to be transmitted and developed through artistic exchange. They are led by a pool of 100+ artists who see teaching as a key part of their practice and are renowned for their knowledge and facilitation skills. The overall programme offers a great place to meet and work with others and aims to generate a ‘community of practice’.
ID’s programme is not based on a normative view of the human body and the classes embody an ethos of questioning, extending notions of what dance can be and for whom. With a focus on movement explorations that attend to what movement feels like, rather than imitating an ideal form, we aim to make classes accessible for all physicalities. If you have any access requirements you would like to make us aware of in advance, please contact email@example.com.
You are welcome to dip in or treat classes as a series. And do also let us know if you would like to recommend teaching artists for the programme.
