My name is Lara Ward. I have spent the the last ten years working as a professional performer. Also a workshop leader in Contemporary Dance and Physical Theatre. Whilst working for many independent dance and theatre companies, I have also danced and sung my way through two National Theatre Wales productions. Working also on five Earthfall Dance productions. Choreographing for Theatre, Film and outdoors – working with Youth Dance Groups, Schools, Universities and even a young choir in Poland. With Earthfall Dance, I was a lead tutor. Teaching company repertoire, contemporary technique, body conditioning, partnering and lift work, contact improvisation and characterisation. I am looking forward to sharing my skills and experience with the young talent in the Vale.
