Have you heard of Cameron McKinney?


If you haven’t heard of Cameron McKinney by now, you should have.

One of the perks of working with emerging artists is the opportunity to see them grow both personally and professionally, and Cameron McKinney is one such artist. A dancer and choreographer based in New York, Cameron is no stranger to Let’s Dance International Frontiers. He first appeared in the festival in 2015 presenting Hitzuendo as part of Signatures and also leading his first workshop in the UK. In 2016, was chosen to develop a full length piece of work for Autograph, With (some of) the Confidence of a White Male. In March, Serendipity will be hosting the European debut of Cameron’s company Kizuna Dance.

Cameron’s technique has developed from a merger of contemporary, Hip Hop, House dance and floorwork with Japanese influences. The fluidity and grace of his movement being a real treat, and one which has inspired those who have had the privilege to work with him. Earlier this year Cameron was one of the course leads for Developing Your Choreographic Voice. It was a fantastic opportunity for a further insight into his technique and practice. Cameron pushes through the states of exhaustion in dance, using it as a tool in itself to gain deeper insight. Cameron is also known for his excellent music selection with all the participants asking for his playlist!

Just last week Cameron announced another exciting development; he has been selected as an emerging choreographer for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s New Directions Choreography Lab. In March 2018, Cameron will be leading the third instalment of Developing Your Choreographic Voice. So if you fancy the chance of working with a rising talent in a course that will not only provide an insight into Cameron McKinney’s technique but also provide you with the tools to develop your own, look no further than Cameron and Kizuna Dance’s residency this spring, this opportunity is not to be missed.
