Bio

As a dance artist and choreographer, Helen specialises in the interplay between language and movement.

She draws on a wide range of physical practices in her choreographic work, from contemporary dance, to sign language. From Cuban rumba, to ballet. Helen creates dynamic and immersive performances for theatre, open air spaces, art galleries, and film.

Helen studied modern dance and jazz with U.K.A Dance, stopped to become a writer, and then went on to train in the Cuban dance techniques of Salsa, Rumba, and Son, before re-training, and establishing her contemporary and interdisciplinary practice in 2014. She has over a decade’s experience performing, facilitating, and teaching dance across the U.K. Helen has worked with the Birmingham Royal Ballet, Def Motion, Poetry International, Made In LND, Apple, Midland’s Actor’s Theatre, Integra Lab, and the Birmingham International Dance Festival to create performances that bridge the gap between text, spoken words, and the body.
