Choreographer and former Artistic Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet Sir David Bintley will judge an online Choreography Challenge for students together with its creator, Brandon Lawrence.

Bintley, who joined bbodance as Vice President less than a year ago, said, "I am delighted and excited by Brandon’s challenge to all aspiring young choreographers. I’m only sorry that, as I’ve agreed to be judge, I won’t be able to enter myself, as the current lockdown has me aching to flex my own choreographic muscles!"

Lawrence added, "having worked closely with David throughout my time at BRB, I couldn’t be more honoured to have his expertise brought to our challenge. It’s important more than ever to keep our world alive with creation."

The Online Choreographic Challenge is open to students of bbodance teachers anywhere in the world, who have to express what lockdown means to them by choreographing one of three original pieces created by composer Andrew Kristy. Entries close on 3 July.
