Can you tell us a bit about yourself and why you wanted to do the Emerging Producer role?
My name is Analeise, I am a trained contemporary dancer that loves working with groove and rhythm. It is very important to me to make dance accessible to everyone, through setting up outreaches and programmes I will be able to do this. I wanted to take on this new role to develop the technical skills in running dance events efficiently and getting dance to the masses.
What are you most looking forward to in the next six months?
I am looking forward to collaborating with artists, supporting them, and helping them to produce their best work. I enjoy bringing artist’s ideas to life, the more outrageous the better. I am looking forward to advancing my skills and becoming proficient at producing and truly making dance an inclusive space.
If you had to identify one thing you hope to have learnt/experienced by the end of this programme, what would it be?
I hope to gain a better understanding of producing within the arts industry and gain hands on experience in working with arts organisations.
Who or what do you like to watch when it comes to dance?
I love watching dance performances with high physicality and great musicality. One of my favourite performances going on right now is Message in a bottle by Kate Prince.
What’s the song that gets you on the dancefloor?
Many songs get me on the dancefloor, one of them being; Can we talk by Kevin Campbell.
