AGE AT AWARD: 22
Dundee-born John developed his interest in dance through his involvement in drama at The Space in Dundee (where he was known as ‘John Henney’). When he was 18, John went on to study dance full-time at the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance also based at The Space. He then auditioned for, and won, a place at the renowned London Contemporary Dance School. He was accepted straight into the second year of their degree course which is only offered to exceptionally talented dancers.
John is already considered to be a dancer of enormous talent and ability.
Studying at the leading contemporary dance conservatoire in the UK, offers him the opportunity to work with some of the world’s top choreographers and teachers in contemporary dance. His former mentors believe that he has the potential to make a significant contribution to the dance world.
John’s ambition is to set up his own dance company.
