About your workshop leader

Juliette O’Brien

I am a theatre and English teacher with over 15 years experience. I have a Masters in Theatre and Performance Studies, a PhD in Dance and am studying for a Certificate in Dance in Education. I have studied many dance styles and musicalities from many different cultures.

I am interested in weaving together my knowledge of music, movement, dance, literature and theatre, and I love experimenting with how these elements can interplay to create enhanced, alternative and layered meanings.
