Bio:
Hayley J S Matthews is a professional contemporary dancer, movement teacher and Rolfer (movement and posture therapist). She lives across the two UK cities of Norwich & London, and is a recent recipient of the Thea Barnes Legacy award. As a performer she performs and teaches internationally and leads her own collaborative projects. In performance Hayley is commanding, embodying feminine power, freedom and grace and is gifted with a talent to access joy and lift despite her context, sharing this with audiences and students worldwide. And has a strong interest in dancer’s health and agency. As a Rolfer Hayley helps children and adults with their posture and alignment to find more ease. She helps clients move through long term conditions, pain and injuries and recover from events and challenges they face in their lives that have embedded in their body. Hayley also works with dancers, athletes and sports-people in rehabilitation and to improve performance. Hayley has recently taught for Viviana Durante Company, Sadlers Wells, East London Dance, English National Ballet, Brighton Fringe Festival and Noyam African Dance Institute (Ghana). She currently performs for Elizabeth Schwatz in research for Isadora Duncan Repertoire Company, Paris. And has recently performed for CoDa Dance, National Theatre Ghana, Noyam Dance. In collaboration Hayley works with other dancers, visual artists and musicians, these projects have a powerful, contemplative edge, often with a deep social element. Hayley’s own work has recently toured to The Cockpit, Brighton Fringe, Waltham Forest Borough of Culture, Norwich Puppet Theatre, Tanzfabrik (Berlin), Noyam (Ghana) Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Norwich Arts Centre, MOTUS, The Peripheral Space Project (Hastings), The Garage (Norwich) & Studio Wayne McGregor. And has developed long-term community strands for her work at Finchams Recovery Unit, Norfolk & Kentish Town Community Centre, London. When teaching Hayley’s focus is on helping people improve strength, balance and ease. And on helping clients improve how they communicate and reach their desires and needs. Clients learn that their mental health, attitude and behaviour lives in their bodies and can therefore be changed through the body. Dancer’s learn how not to hurt themselves in practice, how to express their uniqueness and access their raw power and grace. Hayley runs Rolfing clinics in London, Norwich, Ipswich and Chelmsford, as one of under 50 Rolfers in the UK. The best place to see her dance work online currently is her instagram channel @hayleymatthewsdancer
