Anne Colvin is a Dance Artist and Creative Practitioner. A graduate from the Laban Centre, London, her work spans education, health, community and theatre where she teaches the principles of movement creativity and facilitates person-centred physical and holistic development through creative movement.
She has recently completed a 2 year dance programme – Spring, Dancing into Recovery – in partnership with South East Dance and Brighton Oasis, supporting women and children affected by drug and alcohol misuse.
She mentors artists from different arts disciplines to identify their creative vision and is currently researching for a series of site specific dance works inspired by rural communities’ relationship with their natural environments.
Anne’s Desire Hour session will guide you through playful and creative physical approaches to exploring ideas and developing insight in your work.
South East Dance was established in 1997 and plays a national leadership role in the development of dance. We deliver a programme that encourages curiosity, discovery and risk-taking, supporting artists to create inspirational new work and empowering local communities to engage with dance. Equally important to our mission is giving more people of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to experience the health and wellbeing benefits of dance – to simply feel exhilarated by it. We are respected for investing in and supporting talented choreographers, presenting surprising and inspiring dance performances and leading projects that make a difference in local communities. We work in partnership with businesses, schools, universities and theatres such as Brandwatch, University of Brighton, Sadlers Wells, BBC and Channel 4 to name a few.
