Formed in early 2015, Rees Dance is a new contemporary dance company based in West Yorkshire, led by choreographer and artistic director Gavin Rees. The Company seeks to develop and present cutting edge contemporary dance and provide entry routes for audiences who might not usually engage with dance. The Company is committed to providing professional development and opportunities to develop skills and practice in a professional context for graduate and early career dancers.
Rees Dance is a northern based company, currently working throughout Yorkshire.
The company’s work and style is heavily influenced by the artistic director’s training and performance background, incorporating traditional contemporary techniques such as Cunningham, Graham, Limon and Release, along-side other performance arts involving voice and speech within the physical theatre genre.
Rees Dance offer classes and workshops to schools and colleges that are fun and engaging. We’re always happy to discuss specific learning outcomes in advance that allow the teacher to assess pupils/students during sessions.
