Abstract

In this interview with Gill Clarke she discusses her role as a dance artist, her dance training and background and the influence that somatic practice had on her dancing, teaching and advocacy. The interview highlights the significant contribution that Gill made in exposing and sharing the potential and value of somatic informed dance education. I hope that it also adequately highlights the tremendous contribution that Gill’s work had on the development of independent dance in the United Kingdom and the organization which grew to support independent dance and dancers. Gill Clarke’s discovery of somatic practice changed her whole understanding of the dancing body and dance pedagogy and subsequently her influence on somatic informed dance education in the United Kingdom.
