Aaron Chaplin



During my time at Trinity Laban I was able to grow as a dance artist, being offered opportunities to perform in works such as Wayne McGregor’s FAR (2010). Throughout my studies, I was surrounded by like minded individuals who shared my interests and encouraged me to strive for the best possible result. It was this commitment to hard work that made the transition from student to professional dancer easier.

Aaron graduated with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance in 2017. During his time at Trinity Laban, he worked with choreographers such as Ben Wright and Dr. Naomi Lefebvre Sell and performed in the restaging of Wayne McGregor’s FAR (2010) in his second year. In the summer of 2017, Aaron joined Phoenix Dance Theatre as an Apprentice Dancer where he performed in Robert North’s Troy Game (1974) as well as Aletta Collin’s Maybe Yes Maybe, Maybe No Maybe (2010). Since becoming a company dancer in the summer of 2018, Aaron has danced in works such as Sharon Watson’s Windrush: Movement of the People (2018), a work that celebrated British Caribbean culture and coincided with the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the SS Windrush. In 2019, Aaron performed in Jeanguy Saintus’ Rite of Spring; a reinterpretation of Vaslav Nijinsky’s iconic work exploring the Haitian Vodou religion.
