City Lit offers regular courses in Contemporary Dance, as well as a wide range of other dance courses for all ages in different styles and genres. This workshop is part of the 2021 Mental Wealth Festival hosted by City Lit and partners. The Mental Wealth Festival is a week of events which celebrate and promote activities, projects, ideas and tools which restore, support and enhance positive mental health. The Festival aims to highlight the way mental health issues impact on so many aspects of daily life, and how the arts, politics, culture, faith and the media can support our ‘mental wealth’. We bring together professionals and key stakeholders to discuss mental health issues, providing a forum for informative, challenging and inspiring discussions and workshops exploring mental health issues. For more information visit our Mental Wealth Festival . Don’t forget to follow us on social media and we’d love to see your Mental Wealth Festival photos so please tag us using #MentalWealth2021.
Orley Quick is a contemporary dancer who enjoys working within the field broadly: teaching, performing and choreographing among other roles. Recently she has been making dance performance work collaboratively with other dance artists for theatres and unconventional performance spaces, and she is always excited to find new and challenging ways of working. As a late starter to formal training, this has definitely shaped her approach and urgency to teach dance. Orley loves to work with as many different types of people as possible, with a firm belief that everyone should be able to access dance classes, and that there are benefits for everyone to be dancing, even if you don’t want to be on stage! Orley thoroughly enjoys teaching at City Lit, and all the people she gets to move with here. She wants her students to have a great time, let go and connect to their bodies and those around them, whilst working safely, efficiently and consciously. Alongside her teaching work for City Lit, she trains dancers vocationally in FE colleges, runs workshops and co-founded and teaches for BOTH Dance Classes.
