Laura Coutts

207553_10200151025038768_841372319_nLaura is Artistic Director and practitioner of First Light Performance Company, which is currently working with a number of schools in the South West, trying to instill in pupils that dance is a fun yet valuable activity. Laura found her passion for contemporary dance at St Austell College in Cornwall. It was from her training here that she chose to persue contemporary dance further.

Since studying at the University of Plymouth, Laura  has gained many strengths in performing and is a keen improviser following her studies with Adam Benjamin. In her own practice, Laura likes to focus on inter-collaborative work that includes voice, dance,  theatre and enjoys making work that emotes a language that both audience and performer can relate to.
