Debbie Lee-Antony

Debbie trained at the London Contemporary Dance School 1978-82 and has been teaching for 40 years. Having extensive experience as an independent dancer, choreographer and teacher, Debbie has taught and led projects in a wide range of education and community contexts in the UK and abroad.

Debbie was a Senior Lecturer in Choreography & Dance at the University of Winchester from 1999 – 2019 teaching dance undergraduates, where she managed to balance her work as a dance artist and an academic. She has written extensively on the subject of dance and health, ageing and performance.

Debbie directed her own dance company ‘Soma/Numa’ 1997-2007 and received several project funding grants from Arts Council England with which she devised dance-theatre work for small-scale touring. During the last ten years Debbie has performed several solo dance works and her critically acclaimed duet ‘Do not go gentle’ (2017) was co-choreographed and performed with her daughter Lauren Anthony.

Since 2015 Debbie has relished leading weekly open classes for DANCE SIX-0. She also has experience working as a facilitator for the charity Alzheimer’s Support, leading Movement for the Mind workshops for community groups and people living with dementia.
