Rambert’s animateurs are professional dancers and teachers who deliver our practical education work.

The term “animateur” is used for a role which combines dancing, choreography and teaching. Our animateurs have strong technical background in dance and extensive teaching experience, working with people of all ages and levels of experience.

The animateurs work closely with our artistic teams to structure workshops and training that are directly linked to the company’s current work, and that re-create some of the same creative processes that take place when we’re making new dance works.
