Adult dance classes
For people with dance experience, specialising in classical ballet, contemporary technique and improvisation in South and East London, run by teachers Beatrice Ghezzi and Orley Quick.
By this we mean:
- You may already have a lot of training in the styles we teach
- Be very competent in a style we don't teach
- Know your body well through other physical forms
- Have an excellent attitude to learning when being challenged
All sorts of people come to BOTH: professional dancers, dancers in training, dancers who are coming back to dance, musicians, actors and dance fanatics/hobby lovers from a range of professions. We have a wide range of ages and people from all sorts of dance disciplines and styles accessing the classes for a range of reasons.
As long as you know what you want from the classes we should be able to support you. Any uncertainties do ask us!
NB: we do offer some beginner classes in our weekly teaching elsewhere.
WHO RUNS BOTH?
B for Beatrice
O for Orley
TH for Thursday
Beatrice and Orley trained at Trinity Laban in the same year and then spent many years teaching alongside each other at Lewisham College. We found ourselves to share a complementary formula that worked, enabling students to go on to prestigious dance schools, dance employment or to build fabulous life skills through dance.
We share a deep respect for each other and enjoy being students in each others classes as well as building on a shared-practice that we enjoy developing and researching. We love teaching, we love the people we meet in our classes and ultimately we love working together.
BOTH is our teaching initiative that is the result of these years together as fellow students, performers and teachers. BOTH has been running since October 2018.
