education & community

“Louise has proven herself not only an excellent and adaptable teacher but to be potentially a key figure in the future development of integrated practice”
Adam Benjamin. Co-Founder Candoco

“Louise is a unique and special dancer and educator. Her exterior easy going manner compliments her extremely committed, conscientious, diplomatic and hardworking interior… amazingly adaptable, able to tailor her input to four year olds and adults alike… a totally inclusive practitioner, I saw shy, unconfident children blossom under her input”

Mandy Fox, Head Teacher, Humberstone Infant School, Leicestershire

Education and community activity is the touchstone of FOOT IN HAND’s work. Our experienced artists lead workshops/residencies involving people of all ages and ranges of mobility.

We have specialist knowledge of;
primary schools
special schools
Creative Partnerships
teacher training
disability settings
health settings
cross-generational work

We also actively seek partnerships with non-arts organisations working strategically in these areas.

We happily recommend artists from other areas of education and community practice who have previously worked directly with FOOT IN HAND.

“What struck me was the rapport Louise had with 100 – 150 children of differing ages and indeed their teachers. The quality of the dances she had guided them to produce was simply breathtaking. I’d seen professional adult execute moves with less ability and less beauty”
Audience member, “Cov Cool Kids” Project, Warwick Arts Centre
