As we start building up to the launch of Museums In Motion 2.0, we are pleased to welcome Alicia Muscella to the team.
Hello I’m Alicia Muscella!
I am currently in my final year at Middlesex University studying a BA Hons Dance Studies (Choreography exit award) degree. I recently applied for the Intern role at BEEE Creative CIC and I will be providing administrative and practical support throughout the new project –Museums in Motion 2.0 – in dance and technology education. Being given this opportunity will help me pursue a career for the future in the creative industries, working alongside professional artists and supporting children through education in dance.
During my degree I have developed an understanding on collaborating alongside artists in the community and education work. I enjoy working with different age groups, being involved in many activities. I have recently finished a collaboration project with Wimbledon College of Arts designer students and choreography and Music students from Middlesex University. I enjoy collaborating and exploring different creativity with other individuals, who share similar a passion in creating dance performances. I originally went to Middlesex as a performer, however, over these past three years I have discovered a desire in choreography, and being able to choose the choreographic route for my third year enables me to express my artistic creations. When creating pieces, I tend to focus on my dancers input and their original ideas they have to bring to our rehearsals.
During my recent dance performances, I enjoy working with projection and exploring different ranges of lighting. I find it remarkable how much your piece comes to life when using different forms of technology. Having outstanding facilities in the dance theatre, giving us a variety of equipment we can explore with when creating our pieces, these final touches changes the performance perceptive.
Before applying for university, I used to work at my local dance school in Bedfordshire teaching ages 4-8 years in ballet, tap and modern theatre. I enjoyed working with children, seeing them progress through the years expanding their creative and physical skills through dance. Beyond dance my three-top interests are spending time with my family and friends, exploring different countries and going to the theatre (especially the West End Musicals).
I am extremely excited to be a part of BEEE Creative team, and cannot wait to start the upcoming projects this year!
