‘Give us our daily Dance” Training and practice

“I want to share and give more people permission to dance like themselves” (Lucy Suggate).

“Five years ago I became interested in developing further my own daily practice. For 28 yrs years I’d been trying to dance like other people and in fact all I wanted to do was have an amazing physical, visceral experience and be really good at my job. My interest was how to maintain a dance practice that encourages growth and development and elevate choreographic and performance work. I realised that, becoming an independent choreographer, you inherit a lifestyle that can be difficult to root. So this practice was born out of necessity. I want to share and give more people permission to dance like themselves.

The purpose of this work is to access the dancing body in the fullest sense; To understand better how we dance, negotiate bodily patterns and our thoughts; How to develop our own movement, gain clarity and evolve. I also feel it’s important that, as dancers, we spend time dancing and I mean that in the truest sense: to unleash the internal force and re-connect with the feelings and ideas that encouraged us to dance in the first place.

Initially, I will disseminate my approach to provide a context. This will consist of guided exercises, departure points and lots of flamboyant dancing. We will cultivate a playground of possibilities, discover new forms that collide with and stretch our limitations”.
