Thursday morning Pro Class with local Dance Artist and Artistic Director of Vanhulle Dance Theatre, Laura Vanhulle
THE CLASS Laura uses her background in Cunningham as a baseline for her highly physical classes. Her classes combine multiple influences – her strength as an ex-gymnast, the grounding and core of African Dance, the fluidity and circularity of Kathak, and the vitality and floor work from Flying Low – to create a flowing, strength-based movement class. Her philosophy of dance also incorporates yoga practice, focusing on breath and movement with a conscious intent.
ABOUT LAURA Laura has been choreographing her own work since 2013, touring Angles In Life 2015 and Echo (commissioned by The Lighthouse) 2017, and is developing a full length Infinite Womanhood, premiering in February 2019. A short dance film from Angles in Life has been shown internationally at film festivals – Berlin, London, New York and Tel Aviv. She is currently Choreographer to the Birmingham Conservatoire Young Composers Project, whilst continuing to perform Echo. Trained at Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Laura has been selected to perform or work with national and international companies, including ACE dance and music, Room2Manoeuvre, Aakash Odedra, Shobana Jeyasingh (Counterpoint), Coda Dance, Motionhouse (The Voyage), DV8 (Berlin intensive) and VanL Dance Company.
