Andrew Skeels

Skeels is the winner of the 2015 Think Big choreographic residency competition in Hanover and received the 2013 Prix Coup de Cœur du Public at the Festival Quartiers Danses Montréal. His choreographic language reflects his curiosity and ever-growing love for the art of dance. He draws on his training as a film editor to apply a cinematic approach to his choreography.  He challenges dancers, asking them to move with bold speed, breathtaking fluidity and daring abandon. His work is detail-oriented, and he works patiently to perfect the movement quality, musicality and nuance of his work. He provides a supportive, collaborative work environment that allows dancers to take bold risks.
