‘They built up an excellent rapport with participants and prepared them to develop ambitious and creative practical work.  They led by example and offered insight and analysis as well as practical expertise. Participants learnt how to use their physical expression to develop new material, invaluable when devising and beneficial for enhancing performance skills and boosting confidence.’
