Joss Arnott is an internationally award-winning choreographer who trained at London Studio Centre and Laban. Upon graduation he joined Transitions Dance Company whilst completing his MA Dance Performance and has toured internationally as a choreographer and performer.

Founding Joss Arnott Dance shortly after his training, Joss has been continuously supported by leading dance agencies, venues and organisations. He is in demand as a choreographer and has been commissioned to create work on leading professional dance companies including Rambert Dance Company, through a joint commission with The Lowry, and for dance conservatoires such as Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD) for their 30th Anniversary Graduation Showcase and Trinity Laban. Joss has additionally taught at dance conservatoires such as Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance and The Place.

In 2016, his solo work ‘V’ was awarded with an International Award for Outstanding Choreographic Musical Interpretation and Dance Technicality from WARSAW Zawirowania Dance International.

With a continued passion and commitment to developing the next generation of young artists, Joss has been a Focus Group Artist for Sadler’s Wells National Youth Dance Company, BBC Young Dancer contemporary judge and has worked with and produced multiple works for national Centre for Advanced Training Schemes including Dance City, NSCD, DanceEast, Swindon Dance, Trinity Laban and The Lowry.

2018 marked the year of the newly formed partnership between Joss Arnott Dance and the University of Salford with the launch of the MA Dance Performance and Professional Practices programme and the establishment of EMERGENCE.

Working with Producer Phil Hargreaves over the past ten years has resulted in the continuous success and achievements the company have had to date.

Over the last 12 months, Joss was an Associate Artist at Déda, and received funding from Without Walls and Arts Council England to create ‘PULSE!’, a dance and live music outdoor production set around a 3.5m percussion wheel engineered by Rolls Royce.
