Alumnus dancing with Richard Alston Dance Company in USA

Thu 26 January 2017

This February, Elly Braund will perform with Richard Alston Dance Company (RADC), one of Britain’s foremost contemporary dance companies, as part of the Peak Performances series at Montclair State University, New Jersey.

Joined onstage by the acclaimed musicians of The Shanghai Quartet, RADC will debut a brand new Richard Alston work, Chacony, set to the music of Britten and Purcell, plus the American premiere performances of Martin Lawrance’s Stronghold and Alston’s Mazur and An Italian in Madrid.

Peak Performances has previously presented RADC to high acclaim in 2012 and 2014, with The New York Times’ Alastair Macaulay describing them as “a tonic to watch, even in a season so full of excellent dancers.”

Elly Braund graduated from Trinity Laban in 2011, going on to join RADC as an apprentice and later becoming a full member of the company.

Many Trinity Laban alumni go on to perform in leading dance companies, in the UK and internationally. To find out more about our Dance programmes visit our Study pages.
