Liz Roche

Liz has been teaching professional dance classes and workshops consistently throughout her career. She begins with preparing the body through guided improvisation supported by various somatic practices and methods. Set movement is introduced gradually and complex phrases are built over time in which spaces, real and imagined, as well as musicality is explored. This masterclass connects participants to the on-going work of Liz Roche Company, giving insight into the nuances of this way of moving. Liz has taught at Tanzquartier Wien, FORM Dance Projects Sydney, Dance Ireland, Catch 8 for Attic Projects, Scottish Dance Theatre, Dance Exchange Birmingham. She teaches regularly on the BA and MA courses in Contemporary Dance at The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at University of Limerick.
