In our contemporary partnering masterclass we’ll be exploring momentum, anchoring, and the architectural structure of the body, allowing participants of all genders to lift and be lifted. Skills to be developed include multi-level movement, articulate and sophisticated response to the point of contact, and weight transfer. We’ll then put all of the above into action by learning a segment from Sarah and Philip’s duet “Magnetoreception”.

Suitable: those with Contemporary experience, although not necessarily partner work.

Sarah, a Miami-born dancer to German parents, grew up in Italy before moving to London in 2018. Following the completion of her undergraduate degree from DAF Dance Arts Faculty in Rome, Sarah Graduated with Merit from her MFA in Dance Performance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. She was previously a member of Eliot Smith Dance Company and has performed in works ranging from Big Shaq’s “Man Don’t Dance” to operas at the Royal Opera House.

McDermott’s practice encompasses his diverse training, his own life experiences, his network of professional connections, and a dynamic performance style. In 2014, he was accepted into The School of Toronto Dance Theatre. Against the ongoing challenges of dyslexia, ADHD and Central Auditory Processing Disorder, he successfully graduated from the school in 2017.

Together they formed their London-based dance company Odyl Creations in 2023.
