Jesse Kovarsky

Dance Artist


At Trinity Laban I learned to apply critical thinking to movement. I was given techniques to investigate how my body moved and cultivated an informed view of where my interests lay in the ever-changing world of dance. I left not only as a capable and amenable dancer but also as a thinker with opinions, eager and confident to contribute to creative processes.
