Jasmine is an inclusive movement practitioner working across theatre, opera and film, with performers of all-kinds as well as young people and different communities.
Jasmine's role is to work closely with directors to explore the physical nature of a project, using movement in all its variants to capture the essence of the story: from punchy choreographed sequences to ballroom scenes, from transitions to puppetry and object-manipulation, from ensemble gestures to working 1-1 with actors on character physicality. Jasmine's work is often rooted in breath and emotion, but always puts the people she is working with at the centre of her practice. Jasmine strives to create encouraging, safe, exciting and supportive spaces wherever she works.
As a facilitator, Jasmine believes that engagement with the arts and performance is vital for us to learn and grow as people. Dance and drama can empower and educate. Theatre and opera-making helps build confidence, inspires creativity and fosters empathy. Jasmine is passionate about encouraging young people to find their creative voices through movement and performance.
Jasmine holds an MA in Choreography from Trinity Laban Conservatoire for Music and Dance. Her studies were kindly supported by the Trinity Laban Dance Scholarship and the Trinity Laban Hardship Fund. She also holds a BA in Drama with First Class Honours from the University of Exeter, having proudly received the Bertie Black Prize for academic achievement. Jasmine was part of the 2017/18 cohort for the New Adventures Dance Company programme OVERTURE, a unique and incredible opportunity to develop her community dance practice.
Jasmine continues to develop her practice through attending workshops and completing training opportunities whenever she can. Recently, she was a part of the Spring 2023 cohort for Gecko Theatre's Residency Programme where she developed her skills even further in physical theatre and devising.
Jasmine is also a qualified Mental Health First Aider for both Adults and Youth.
