What should I wear? Comfortable clothing, nothing too loose. Ballet shoes or socks. What do I need to bring? Something to tie your hair back if you have long hair. Bottle of water.

Teacher: Emily-Fleur Peake

Originally from Royal Wootton Bassett, Emily-Fleur moved to London to train at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, gaining a First Class Honours in Contemporary Dance. She furthered her training by completing her Masters in Advanced Dance Performance here, at Dance City, and has since been refining her practice as a Dance Artist; performing and teaching. She has always had a keen interest in teaching alongside performance and has been working in a variety of contexts across the North East for many years, teaching ages 5 to 93. She has a strong passion for working with mature dancers in the community believing everyone can, and should dance. Her classes are influenced by the Release and Cunningham techniques of Contemporary, building strength and flexibility whilst exploring fluidity by using our breath to aid our movement. She works to release tension, find freedom in our bodies and discover new patterns of moving, and most importantly aims to create a safe environment for all participants to find joy in moving together.
