Jane has been involved in dance all her life, starting training at the age of three. During the late seventies and eighties she worked as a professional dancer in theatre, television and in films. After completing a BA (Hons) Dance Studies degree at Middlesex University, as a mature student, Jane rediscovered contemporary dance. During the community dance week on the course she was inspired by DanceBase and joined the company in 2010.
We are here to nurture, support and encourage participants to find their own inner dancer. Working with children and young adults with mixed abilities has challenged me to think of new inclusive ways of creating movement. I encourage the participants to devise and create dance through the use of tasks, narratives, music and images. This helps them explore their own movement vocabulary. I love seeing the benefits that dance can bring.
