Sophie watkinson

I am a community dance artist, choreographer and business owner working and living in the picturesque county of Lincolnshire. I founded my business do-dance in summer 2013 after graduating from Plymouth University in Dance Theatre.  do-dance is a mobile dance business that prides itself on delivering expressive movement, and creative dance projects in the heart of the rural Lincolnshire community. I have a breadth of experience working with all ages and abilities, from working with Early Years adventures group in the local theatre right through to the over 60's exercise classes in community halls. I have worked within structured school environments delivering the GCSE course to free play and creative classes with in the community. When asked why I wanted to set up my own business in little old Louth, I reply ‘I always knew that I wanted to come back to my home town after graduating, I have amazing ideas for dance in Lincolnshire that I want to see happen. Just because we live in a rural area of the county does not mean we should be denied the opportunity to experience and participate in dance, move and express ourselves creatively’. I have always loved the arts, so I often find myself expressing creativity through other mediums such as painting, drawing, sculpture, craft and photography.
