Elly Braund



I loved my time at Trinity Laban, the thorough technique training set me up with a strong base to work from. I was able to explore in depth; ballet, Graham, Cunningham and Limon techniques with such excellent teachers, I was pushed and encouraged and supported all the way through my training.

The New York Times said “Elly Braund whose vivid contributions make dancegoers turn to their programs in quest of identification; has presence and individuality.” Elly has toured nationally and internationally with the company, performing work by Richard Alston and Martin Lawrance. In addition she has performed works by Martha Graham, Gary Lambert, Kerry Nicholls, Merce Cunningham (The Bride and the Bachelors staged by Jeannie Steele) and Joseph Tonga (Unease).
