Annabel Knobbs

Annabel grew up in Staffordshire and began dancing at her local dance school, Minnie Skerrett’s School of Dance, from the age of three. At 12, she successfully auditioned for the Centre for Advanced Training scheme in Birmingham and was exposed to the possibility of a career in contemporary dance whilst working with inspiring dance artists such as Gary Clarke, Igor X Moreno, Cameron McMillan and John Ross. Annabel graduated in 2019 with a first-class BA (Hons) Degree from London Contemporary Dance School, where she performed in works such as Honey by Leila McMillan, Ballet by Marikiscrycrycry and An Event by Merce Cunningham, restaged by Jeannie Steele. Annabel has a deep interest in the body’s physiological capabilities, and a passion for testing physical boundaries, so is eager for the opportunities to do so and explore and develop her artistic voice as part of EDGE 2020.
