Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot was born in Paris and grew up in Burgundy, France. After a first love for Geology, she studied Movement Education in Paris 10 Nanterre (France), contemporary dance and choreology at Laban and Contact Improvisation all over Europe. She has been teaching and leading dance projects in the UK and internationally since 2007, among others with Dance United, and has been with City Lit and Candoco since 2010.

Anne-Gaëlle also works as a dancer for companies and choreographers such as H2Dance, Noa Zamir, Giannalberto De Filippis and Michal Mualem (Sasha Waltz and Guests), Joe Moran and Plan B and makes her own work collaboratively with many artists and the collective The Latecomers (last work: solo Vertigos shown at The Place in Jan 13). An improvisation and composition lover, she enjoys performing and watching performances officially, anonymously, spontaneously, intensely, grotesquely, in miniature, simply, collaboratively, till exhaustion, just a bit…

Anne-Gaelle also co-leads our Youth Dance Classes.
