Director Biography

Jennifer Drotz Ruhn is a Swedish dancer and choreographer sharing her base between Stockholm and the Scottish East Coast. After studying choreography for two years she wanted to further her education abroad and moved to Scotland where she received a BA in Contemporary Dance in 2014 from The Scottish School of Contemporary Dance. A constant exploration and curiosity for the art form has led her to become an open minded, eager choreographer always aiming to find the genuine, human moments which dance has the privilege of being able to capture.
