I am delighted to be back teaching again in the dance studio. I am teaching regular classes for Dance Base (Scotland’s National Centre for Dance) The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (Glasgow) and The MGA Academy (Edinburgh) I am also developing plans for a one man show that showcases my own written monologues and choreography, hopefully for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2022. Watch this space for more details.

The dancers and I have been working for the last six weeks to co-create a zoom performance ‘Mary-Jane & Sebastian’ We are asking the audience to arrive for 6.25 and show starts at 6.35 pm. We are unable to allow latecomers (we are filming the dance) Music by Peggy lee and Tom Murray. The performance lasts around 7 mins and we would welcome feedback and questions afterwards.
I have been working with 14 dancers for the last five weeks to co-create ‘Jigsaw analogy’ Join us this Friday in a Zoom meeting on the 14th of May at 6.35pm.PLEASE NOTE: have your sound on mute and camera off when you join. The performance will last about 10min, if you wish you can unmute at the end of the performance.
Alan is running a six week virtual choreography research group. Dates are April 9th to May 14th. Cost £30. 6 to 7 pm. The theme of this bloc is collage, working with a sound score of text, ambient sounds and music to create dance, movement and theatre. Improver/Intermediate level. You will learn choreographed phrases and create your own moves through improvisation and movement scores. On the last week there will be an opportunity to share the work live with family and friends. To register, email Alan and he will send you his bank account details and a few days before class begins he will send a zoom link and password.
“Personally I find our Friday night class a sanctuary where we can escape and restore. Alan is the most engaging and fun teacher to work with” (class participant)
