Choreographer Iain Rowe: Artist-In-Residence

Posted by Ashley Mulvihill , 6 days, 2 hours ago

We invited choreographer Iain Rowe to be our first ever dance focused Artist-in-Residence at our Drake Devonshire location. Born and raised in Canada, educated and trained at Canada’s National Ballet School in Toronto, he went on to join The Royal Danish Ballet at the mere age of eighteen. Twelve years later with a Masters degree in Choreographic Studies from New York University, he has created an extensive repertoire integrating his broad range of experiences and we've been lucky enough to learn about his process and practice.
