Artist profile

Samantha Harper

I’m a final year dance student from MMU Cheshire. My work is based around choreographic dance workshops for different age groups. I offer ‘Creative Dance Projects’ to the community of those interested in dance. Participants learn about how to create and develop movement. Awarness of organic movement and how it can come from anywhere. I use differnt stimuli such as text, sound and imagry to create movement. Usually ending the project with a performance at the end. I also deliver contemporary technique classes to all ages.’Shaun Release’ Workshops, workshops for challeging children/adults, for those who are still greiving for example. These workshops offer an escape from what ever life may be throwing at you or the oppotunity to open up and work through any issuses you may have with contemporary dance.I also like to collaborate with other dance artist, musicians and artists to create work purely for performance.
