Esther Felicitas Huss, born in Germany.
Esther's passion for movement was ignited at the age of 8. Growing up in the village of Umkirch, in the Black Forest, her main interests were nature and being outdoors, not to dance. Yet the encounter with her first ballet teacher Susan Carter opened her eyes and body to new ways of communicating, that from this point onwards remained a central part of her life.
In 2000, Esther moved to the UK to study dance professionally and graduated from London Studio Centre in 2003 with a BA (Hons) Degree in Theatre Dance.
Since then she has worked as a freelance dancer, teacher and choreographer in both the professional and community dance sector. Esther’s professional appearances include several productions at the Royal Opera House London, and works with Kate Flatt, Aletta Collins, Jacky Lansley, Michael Keagan-Dolan, Ron Howell, Bernadette Iglich, amongst others.
In 2012 she was awarded a grant to present work at BIG DANCE. In support of this work she published an article called 'What’s the point of Community Dance' in the National Magazine ANIMATED, published by The Community Dance Foundation.
Esther is an Associate Artist of the 'Dance Research Studio - DRS' founded by Jacky Lansley. Through her involvement at DRS, in particular, Esther became passionate about Interdisciplinary Performance. She is a guest tutor on the professional development programme ‘The Speaking Dancer’.
In March 2013, Esther Co-founded the Dandelion Collective.
