Fenella Kennedy is a dance-geek from London, now residing in the graduate department of the Ohio State University. Somewhere between movement and language, the performed and the social, you will find them attempting to collect, dance, and document art and meaning.
Fenella – Fen – began their career as a performer, touring England and Europe while lecturing at the TrinityLaban Conservatoire in dance history and analysis, and restaging several works by Martha Graham before they moved to the US to being a PhD in Dance Studies. Their writing has been published in Dance Chronicle, and they have spoken at conferences on dance and language, dance blogging, queer dance history, disability pedagogy, and blues dance. They still get on stage as often as possible!
In their spare time Fen co-organizes social partnered dancing in Columbus and all over the US – if they are in a city near you, be sure to ask them to dance!
