After graduating from Laban, Lynnette has been working in the field of dance for many years as a dance artist, choreographer and in 2013 qualified and registered with ADMP, UK as a Dance Movement Psychotherapist. She is increasingly curious about where therapy meets performance and her evolving practice means that she is often at the interface of both. Lynnette’s teaching practice draws on over twenty years of experience in community dance.
The exploration of movement potential in every individual is key and she challenges herself in seeking out opportunities to explore movement in its broadest form whilst combining other art forms to influence her work. Lynnette has significant experience in leading both choreographic and therapeutic work with learning disabled artists. She currently offers creative movement classes, workshops and Movement Therapy at DanceEast, Ipswich and is Artistic Director of Spin Off Dance Company.
Lynnette’s recent portfolio includes choreographic projects for Gecko, Physical Theatre Company and Stopgap alongside co choreographic positions for DanceEast’s annual large-scale community performance project. She has accreditation by English National Ballet and Parkinson’s UK to facilitate Dance for Parkinson’s classes, alongside New Adventures & Re-bourne accredited Dance for Life, Dementia program. Lynnette facilitates weekly DMP sessions for children and adults with learning disabilities; within that, she offers reflective practice for assistants who support the sessions.
She works collaboratively within hospice settings, whilst offering bespoke CPD opportunities. And as a way of nurturing her own reflective practice, she has set up an independent research and development project with a fellow community dance artist. They aspire to enable a breadth of opportunities for inter-disciplinary artists working within the Arts.
