Scarlett teaches dance and movement in a wide range of contexts, drawing on the various methods and approaches to the body she has practised over the years: ballet, modern and contemporary dance techniques, movement for actors, butoh, somatics, yoga.
Classes and workshops are available for professional dance, theatre and opera companies, student groups, adult and youth community groups.
Scarlett's classes can focus on:
warming up and preparing the body for experimentation, creation or performance
devising: developing a movement vocabulary and movement score
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. Her feedback and advice aim to encourage authenticity and bravery, deeper awareness and individuality of expression.
Scarlett is regularly commissioned by Royal Central School of Speech and Drama since 2014 to teach embodied practice and movement improvisation on the MA programme, as well as present choreographic works for design students to collaborate on, accompanying them with tutorials too.
Scarlett taught contemporary dance technique classes for several years at The Place, Danceworks, Pineapple, Urdang Academy, Movingartsbase, and Margaret Howard Theatre College.
