Artist Director

Jenny founded About Time Dance Company in 2016 after returning to her home of Lancashire. The company is inspired by Jenny’s love for heritage and forgotten stories from the North of England. She aims to share through high quality dance performances and projects. She also has a passion for engaging different communities in arts and dance that wouldn’t usually do so by using heritage and social history as an initial point of interest.

Her first professional touring work ‘Cotton’ has toured the North West region with the aim to share tales from Lancashire’s Mills. Moving forward from this success Jenny has recently created a brand new show called ‘Walking Watling Street’ which uncovers the incredible forgotten story of the great 1913 Pilgrimage. She has also created a large participatory project for Morecambe Bay Partnership called Gone Fishin’ which illuminates the rare fishing traditions of the Bay.

As a dancer Jenny recently performed in the critically acclaimed work ‘Passage for Par’ by Rosemary Lee which was described as world class by the financial times. She has experienced the phenomenal transformation of site through dance which will certainly aid the creative process for Longways and Crosswise.

Jenny completed her professional training at both the London Contemporary Dance School and Trinity Laban conservatoires and still works professionally as a dancer as well as running About Time Dance Company. She also teaches part time at the University of Central Lancashire and works across the North West delivering and participating in a wide variety of projects
