Ian Garside

Where? Northern School of Contemporary Dance

Ian’s class is a physiological training from a dance perspective, aiming to harness and refine an all-round availability for a multitude of movement potentials: Very physical, [i.e. sweat dripping from the walls, sore thighs the following days..!] ’technique’ class dealing with co-ordination, musicality, stamina and other physiological aspects of strength, balance, power, flexibility; all approached with an attention to dynamism, finesse, and enjoyment (he plays quite loud bouncy music in these classes!)

Ian Garside studied theatre and classical acting before gaining a BA (Hons) from Laban (London) and studying at P.A.R.T.S. (Brussels). Since 2010 he has worked as a performer for various companies and independent choreographers across Europe, including Liquid Loft/ Chirs Haring (Vienna) and touring with the critically acclaimed verbatim dance theatre production ‘John’ (DV8 Physical Theatre, London). Alongside performance, Ian has taught in a multitude of contexts, most notably: delivering master classes, workshops and auditions for DV8 Physical Theatre at such venues as the worlds’ leading contemporary dance festival ImPulsTanz (Vienna).
