Ellen Jeffrey

Dance Artist, Choreographer


In Choreological Studies, Trinity Laban offered me the time and space to engage with movement as a form of physical inquiry: to ask questions by moving, to make statements through movement. Studying choreology opened my mind and challenged my body, sparking an ongoing curiosity into how movement works.
