Dance Workshop

18 January 2017

On Tuesday, Ingrid Kapteyn, Dance graduate alumna of The Juilliard School and star of ‘Sleep No More’ visited the school and spent the day working with small groups of students from across the school – from our budding actors and dancers in the forthcoming primary drama production, to Drama students in Year 8, IGCSE and IB.

We already have an established Music collaboration with Juilliard and Ingrid’s visit marks the start of the next phase with respect to Dance. Students enjoyed being inspired in the dance workshops delivered by Ingrid and supported by Marta Cotrim, our Head of Drama. A memorable experience for all involved and one which will hopefully prove useful for all involved in the Performing Arts at BISS.

Ms Kapteyn studied ballet near her home in Deerfield, Massachusetts before graduating from Juilliard's BFA program with The Martha Hill Prize in May 2013. She has a great deal of experience working with a variety of directors and has been in countless productions since graduating. She currently plays the roles of Lady Macduff and Danvers in Punchdrunk's production of 'Sleep No More' in Shanghai.
