Deepraj Singh first started dancing in afterschool capoeira sessions at the age of 8. From there his interest in movement and musicality began to grow. He joined Bristol based youth dance company Kinesis and continued his movement exploration at Cotham School where dance was taught as part of the curriculum. He continued his training via the CAT (Centre of Advanced Training) programme run in Swindon, and was on both the urban strand and contemporary strand before successfully auditioning for London Contemporary Dance School. Deepraj was awarded a scholarship whilst training at London Contemporary Dance School and graduated with a first in July 2015. After graduating he has continued working as a freelance dancer and has toured professional pieces internationally such as Akademi’s ‘The Troth’. Deepraj draws upon his urban dance techniques when creating pieces, which are rhythmically explorative and emotionally driven. The use of improvisation is prominent within his work, representing the authenticity of human experience. He makes pieces that are accessible on both an emotional and physical level to a wide variety of audiences.
