Louise Howitt

Louise grew up passionate about dance, having trained in ballet, modern and contemporary. She went on to pursue a medical career, qualifying in 2014 and working during and after her degree in the areas of paediatrics and learning disability. When she came out of the NHS in 2016, she delved into the world of community dance, with a desire to make dance accessible and inclusive for everyone, building on her experiences in the medical world. She has worked as a community dance facilitator over recent years in the areas of early years, in SEN and mainstream schools, with adults with learning disabilities and in residential homes. She now works as a Project Manager at the Royal Opera House, managing their primary school outreach programme, Chance to Dance. This project aims to broaden access to ballet and dance for young people, and increase the diversity of young people who go on to further training.

Louise firmly believes that everyone should have access to dance, and her inclusive practice stems from an understanding that each individual can bring something new and unique to the art form. She is excited to be joining DanceSyndrome as a Trustee.
