Dance Gazette | Advice Bureau | Issue 10 – June 2024

Jasmin Vardimon is an Israeli-born choreographer. Founded in 1998, Jasmin Vardimon Company has been a leading force in British dance theatre for over 20 years, noted for its challenging and visually arresting productions.

The best advice I ever received AND the advice I would pass on 

• Never restrict your curiosity, and always continue to feed it. 

• Explore and learn new territories, abilities, and approaches.

• Find your own independent answers.

Jasmin Vardimon Company took part in Exploring Repertoire: Alice in Wonderland at the RAD in London on 1 and 2 June.
