Meet the Dance Artist

Karla
Dance Lead

I’ve been a dance lead for the group since 2012 and involved as a support artist since it’s creation in 2009. I work with older dancers across the East Midlands having previously led sessions at Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester and currently leading class at Nottingham Playhouse Theatre. I am a visiting lecturer at Lincoln and Leicester Universities training dance students in best practice when working with older people. I trained with Diane Amans, a world leader in older people dancing, and Dr Richard Coaten specialising in making sessions dementia friendly. We are very proud of what we offer at Movement for All and we’re always happy to hear from potential new members and supporters, please use the contact us page to get in touch!
