Glasgow Open Dance School (G.O.D.S) was founded in 2011 by artists Romany Dear, Letitia Pleiades and Ashanti Harris. G.O.D.S is a collective, which facilitates experimental movement workshops and research groups in different locations in Glasgow. It is an open group with an intentionally non-thematic style that is intended for anybody with a desire to move, dance, learn, teach or share. We encourage all forms of moving and methods of teaching and we value shared learning and collective movement above individual excellence. G.O.D.S believes that everyone is a dancer! And everyone is a teacher! And we create spaces that are supportive for people trying new things and exploring movement.
