Ben is a Dublin based dance artist with a passion for choreography and progressive artistic practice. Ben developed a passion for performing arts early in life. This passion led Ben to Company B an all boys amateur dance company held in Dance House. Here, under the mentorship of Ciaran Grey, Ben was able to discover and nurture their own creative voice. While at Company B Ben worked with various professional artists, both in and out of the company. Artists such as; Liv O’Donoghue, Junk Ensemble, Liz Roche, and many more.
Feeling the need to further their technique Ben attended “Fontys Dance Academy”, and trained in various modern and classical techniques. Due to the pandemic and feeling an eagerness to join the working field, Ben decided to part with Fontys and begin looking for work in Ireland. Since leaving the academy, Ben has had the opportunity to learn from and work with; Keren Rosenberg, Oona Doherty, and Muirne Bloomer. Ben’s focus for the future is to expand both his technical and artistic vocabulary in order to build an expansive but unified artistic community within Ireland.
