Professional Dance Artist, Choreographer, Dance Teacher/Facilitator and Movement Director. Artistic Director and Choreographer of Anna-Lise Marie Dance, with a vast experience of creating work for stage, film and camera, non-traditional performance spaces, site-specific, outdoor work and immersive, experiential and bespoke experiences.

I have choreographed and produced many collaborative projects and commissions; commercially and artistically. My dance film work has been recognised across many festivals internationally, receiving awards from the Croydon International Film Festival, ScreenMotion Festival, winning the Southbank Poetry Film Competition in 2014 and screened at Sadler's Wells Theatre in 2016. In 2015, I was shortlisted for the Inspiring Emerging Choreographer Award with Dance London. I was also a selected artist for the Creation Box InBox Residency Programme.

I have extensive experience of working with all ages, from primary school children all the way through to elders, of varying abilities with dance and movement. The connection between dance/movement and well-being is one that really excites me and something I am extremely passionate about pioneering. I believe dance is a beautiful, creative and limitless language, it is a powerful way of communicating with ourselves and with each other. My work is deeply rooted in collaboration and working with others, those within the creative industries and in other sectors. I am passionate about infusing creativity, individuality and expression in my work and creating a supportive, inclusive and inspiring environment. I have an open curiosity to the creative process and a deep fascination with the exploration and articulation of the body as a tool for communication and artistic expression.
