Chelsea Arts Club Trust Research Fellow

My involvement with the worlds of art and dance combines a formal dance education with work within both not-for-profit and commercial art galleries. Starting out in classical dance, I later studied contemporary dance practice and this lead to my interest in interdisciplinary work between art and dance from the Ballet Russe onwards. This is something I now want to explore further through the Chelsea Arts Club Trust Research Fellowship looking at questions such as “can art be choreographed?” whilst developing my understanding of the professional art world and searching for my place within it.
