Bess is a highly experienced professional dancer based in London United Kingdom whose previous credits have included Sony Network Productions, Channel 5 UK, NFL and Comedy Central.
She began her dance training at a young age in North London specializing in classical ballet,
contemporary and jazz and continued her classical training at ‘The Saxtead School Of Dance’ in the South East of England. Here she completed all her vocational ballet exams (RAD) to the highest standard before the age of sixteen, and upon turning sixteen recieved offers from some of the UK’s most prestigious dance and musical theatre schools including Stella Mann College and Dance East C.A.T Scheme. But as some other exciting opportunities presented themselves around this time, Bess chose to throw herself straight into the professional dance world. Some of her earliest work focused on live theatre, music video and commercial performance, including a supporting role in a music video for
international musical artist Ghazal Sadat.
Bess’s career has witnessed continued involvement on the commercial side, live theatre projects and appearances in feature films (Mubarakan-2017, Mental Hai Kya-2019). Most recently Bess choreographed the short experimental dance film ‘Align’ which took sixteen international awards in 2020.
This included ‘Best Dance Chroegraphy’ at the Oniros Film Awards (Italy) and ‘Best Choreography’ at the Vegas Movie Awards (USA), a Film Festival that has previously awarded a multitude of A-list talent including Academy Award winning director Guy Nattiv and award winning actors Olivia Coleman and Gerard Depardieu. The film has also been officially selected at ‘Choreoscope’ Dance Film Festival (Barcelona), 28th annual ‘Quinzena de Danca de Almada’ Dance Festival (Portugal), In Shadow Screendance Festival (Portugal), ‘Choreographic Festival of Blois’ (France), Moving Body Festival (Bulgaria) and Divulge Dancers’ Film Festival (Hollywood, USA).
The film’s most recent recognition (November 2020) was winning the ‘Best Art-Dance Award in a Short Film’ at the fifteenth annual Cyprus International Film Festival.
In May 2021 it is set to screen at the Tribeca Centre New York City at the prestigious tenth Annual Video Art and Experimental Film Festival. The film will feature as part of their programme ‘Beauty, Sex and Shame’.
Bess is currently working on some exciting new choreography for an upcoming dance feature film.
