Profile

Bisola's passion for movement is anchored within her West African dance heritage. Her movement practice also integrates contemporary and Hip Hop dance forms. This movement merger came from her long years of improvising and exploring different ranges of movement qualities, she found that the three dance styles allow a range of motion for the spine and pelvis, and are instrumental in awakening the senses. Through improvisation Bisola explores free flow in the search for new expressive movement vocabularies.

Bisola has always aspired to teach her movement exploration to movers and non-movers, through the discovery of the Ido portal.

During her BA in Dance Bisola taught young children in Northampton and advocated West African dance forms. She also found herself directing, teaching and choreographing actors and dancers for the final project of her BA, which motivated her to refine her teaching approach for actors. Bisola is now working both as a dancer and movement practitioner, teaching, learning and developing as an artist.
