Ms Caroline Lofthouse

Senior Lecturer in Dance

About

I am a Senior Lecturer in Dance and a founding member of staff in the Dance Department at Kingston University. I have a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance and an MA in Dance Training and Education both from London Contemporary Dance School and I have worked in dance for over 20 years. Before Kingston, I performed extensively with Loop Dance Company, working with choreographers such as Jonzi D, Yael Flexer and Filip Van Huffel. I also worked for Candoco and Richard Alston Dance Company and was a member of the faculty at London Contemporary Dance School, Roehampton University and London Studio Centre.

My research interests include, performance training, inclusive practice, yoga for dancers and most recently I am developing my skills and interest in movement direction and movement for actors.
