A picture of Elaine Harvey

I initially trained in Performance Studies, focusing on integrated approaches to choreography and live art, before completing an MA in Choreography. 

I have worked for over ten years as a community dance practitioner within a variety of settings and have an active interest in creating work with people who have not trained in dance. I have worked with and taught groups of all ages, often acting as subject specialist in both the private and public sector. I have worked extensively with local authorities as part of several cultural development programmes designed to widen access and participation to performance arts. 

My interests include the use of autobiographical material as choreographic methodology and performance, site-specific work and community dance practice which explores the points at which politics intersects and shapes the art-making process.  I have performed with a variety of small-scale dance / physical theatre companies and most recently in balletLORENT’s production of ‘Maternal’.
