As a founding member of Edge Hill’s successful EdgeFWD dance company, Connor co-created and toured A Beautiful Hell culminating in a week-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
After graduating with a First Class degree, he went on to train in the founding year of Jasmin Vardimon Company’s JV2 Programme. He has since performed with State Of Emergency, Gary Clarke Company, and Italy’s Compagnia Area, and has toured venues across Europe, Brazil and Asia. Connor is also one half of North West based company Them Two, commissioning and touring new outdoor dance theatre with support from Arts Council England.
“I first met Connor with EdgeFWD and his buoyant energy and charisma, along with his undeniable creativity and talent, shone through from the start. From student to professional,I have witnessed him grow into a well-seasoned and mature dance practitioner who has gone from strength to strength. His constant drive, professionalism and approach is a true testament to the excellent training he had at Edge Hill.”
