About Lucy Nicholson
Lucy is a senior lecturer on the BA (Hons) Dance course at The University Of Central Lancashire, Preston and Founder of In Movement, an embodied creative provision for young people and adults.
Her practice focuses on working with the body to support bodily awareness, to empower and to support transformation. As a lead dance artist with Dance United much of her work has focussed within the criminal justice system and more recently with adults in recovery through an Asset-based creative writing and performance project called Reading The World. She develops leadership and facilitation skills through an embodied and inclusive approach.
The essence of Lucy’s work is to return to the body as a starting point for creative practice, she uses a grounding in Laban / Bartenieff movement theories to underpin these explorations.
