Ballet, Contemporary

Martyn graduated from The Royal Ballet School, after completing 8 year of studies in dance and academics.
Upon graduation he was offered a contract with the well renowned San Francisco Ballet where he remained for 7 years, dancing works by classical and modern masters including Mark Morris, William Forsythe and George Balanchine.

Leaving established company life behind, he has found his way as an independent artist working in the UK and across Europe, guesting as a dance artist for various projects both in classical and contemporary dance.
Martyn has spent the last 4 years living and working in Edinburgh, Scotland where he studied at Edinburgh College and worked in mental health as a recovery worker.
During this time Martyn has taught classes in ballet, contemporary and improvisation at various professional dance schools and studios including the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Martyn continues to create contemporary performance work that is multi-disciplinary in form using poetry, song, installation, movement and film.
With the desire to maximize a dancers movement potential in both ballet and improvisation styles, Martyn’s teaching focuses on speed, dynamic, quality, habitual patterns, technique and enjoyment.

« I have had great privileges and insight within my training and professional dance experience. Now I feel it’s my responsibility and desire to share openly with my students my knowledge and experience that relate to dance. »
