.Josh Beamish- Ils dansent
I have worked with Josh Beamish coordinating workshops, tours, performances and residencies in British Columbia since 2005. During this time I have watched Josh attain elite status in the dance community both nationally and internationally as an artistic director, performer, choreographer and educator. His extraordinary talent and unique movement signature can only be described as prodigious.
The full version of this episode is available online at http://ilsdansent.radio-canada.ca/ . For anyone who was worked with Josh there is some incredibly valuable insight to be gained by watching the entire episode.
