Paul Davies

dancer with van huyn co / etta ermini dance theatre / tangled dance / barnaby booth dance | former dancer with kapow dancer


Floorwork/floorwork creation

Warm up uses clear, physical and rigorous exercises mixing contemporary dance together with fitness skills. The second part of class draws from floor based techniques along with breakdancing as foundation to build high-powered and dynamic sequences. the classes are both energetic and challenging with technical focus on floor-work and how to move safely and effectively in and out of the floor. Paul's class is full of enthusiasm whilst creating a fun space to move unapologetically. You will definitely break a sweat! There will be creation and learning of repertoire throughout the workshop, also in partner work, if it is allowed - fingers crossed! the goal is to move as agile and fluid as possible, whilst making it look smooth as can be. with easing of tension to agility and teasing softness with power.

some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!

Paul trained at The Northern School of Contemporary Dance, graduating with a First Class Degree. He went on to complete an apprenticeship with Motionhouse Dance Theatre, touring over 2015-2016 and teaching for Motionhouse Youth company. He has also delivered classes and workshops all over the UK and Europe. He has performed works by Motionhouse Dance Theatre, such as Captive and Broken, Tino Seghal's Kiss, Tangled Dance Company's Once Upon A Twisted Time, and Frosted By Magic, KAPOW's Climb The City and Van Huynh Company's DEP, and Resurrection. he has also recently been pushing the promotion and works of the company he co-created, Hardly Lucky Dance Theatre. He has a strong belief in working hard and enjoys pushing his body. Pushing through the tiredness is where the substance of life is! He often quotes: Earn your day.
