Laura Johnston-Scott

Laura has 10 years experience working as a dancer, dance teacher and choreographer in Scotland, Italy and Australia. Her work focuses mainly on the community and education sectors using creativity as an educational and learning resource, in the belief that the arts permits participants to reach their full potential, acquire inter and intra cultural understanding, and allow the development of unique, powerful and multiple ways of perceiving, interpreting, knowing, representing and communicating understanding about self and the world we live in.
She is committed to creating opportunities of public engagement and social inclusion through the medium of dance, and believes in the importance of working in an interdisciplinary and collaborative manner to bridge gaps between different community groups. The core element to her practice is to work in a collaborative & cross-disciplinary manner, with a focus on community, legacy and heritage.
