Scarlett teaches dance and movement in a wide range of contexts, drawing on the various methods and disciplines she has practised over the years: ballet, modern and contemporary dance, somatics, movement for actors, butoh, yoga.
Classes and workshops are available for professional dance, theatre and opera companies, vocational secondary and higher education courses, adult and youth community groups.
Scarlett's sessions can focus on:
warming up and preparing the body for experimentation, creation or performance
devising: developing a movement vocabulary and improvisational movement score or set choreography
mentoring on existing work and facilitating further research and development, or preparation for auditions
Workshops and residencies allow for longer and more intensive time together, and can focus on:
learning and performing repertoire material
creative experimentation and devising new work
exploring improvisation tools
movement / embodied practice for non-dancers
yoga for self-care and performance
Throughout her teaching, Scarlett promotes clarity and discipline alongside a playful and experimental attitude. She aims to encourage authenticity and bravery, deeper awareness and individuality of expression.
