Shannon Thurgood

Co-Founder / Artistic Director

I have recently graduated from the Dance course at De Montfort University. I have been training in Contemporary Dance and Drama since a young age and am currently undertaking my MA degree in Performance Practice.


I have always been interested in making current and relevant work with the aim of allowing Dance to impact the thoughts of my audiences. I hope to bring my love of physical theatre to the company, integrating it with Contemporary Dance. 


I believe in the power of Dance and its ability to communicate important issues.

Emma McBain

Co-founder / Performer

Having recently graduated from De Montfort University after studying Contemporary Dance, an aspect of my training that I took a great interest in was choreography and the art of creating work freely.

My passion is in creating abstract work that experiments with the use of space and lighting working collaboratively with the performers. Furthermore I am thoroughly invested in using my choreographic work as a voice to communicate issues relevant to modern day society.

Jack Jones 


Co -founder / Composer

I’m a composer and performer,  I graduated from De Montfort University studying in Music Technology and Performance (BA). I focus on exploring the way in which music feels emotionally, physically and sub consciously. My works are usually heavily concept based however, from a musical point of view the creative process is much more improvised.  Working in a variety of studios, venues and bands I've had the opportunity to bring my interpretations of peoples morals and attitudes to life working on recordings and performances.


Composing for dance gives me the opportunity to collaborate in a creative art form that explores diverse topics that music would struggle to do alone.

Clio has a varied performance background in both acting, dance and puppetry; most recently performing as Mrs Thernadier in Les Miserables at Rhoda McGaw Theatre.

She has spent the summer of 2018 teaching in the USA and is currently training at De Montfort University.

Her passion lies in combining acting with movement as well as exploring abstract dance.

Ellie Wraight


Ellie is currently in her second year of studying Dance at De Montfort University. She previously studied at Bedales School and performed with The Luke Brown Dance Company.
