Tim has been Programme Manager for Dance at Morley College since January 2012. He has also been teaching acting at the College since 2005 and his work has included practical acting studies for adults with learning difficulties and disabilities. As Programme Manager, Tim’s aim is that the Dance Department should achieve a successful balance between the provision of a popular and eclectic dance programme, catering for a diversity of demand, including for those engaged in dance as part of their professional practice, together with an innovative programme of more experimental curriculum development, dance arts in the community and dance performance opportunity for adult students.
