Becoming serious about dancing at the age of 20, Paul Singh is now unmatched in his intellectual and physical dedication to the practice of movement. Lit up by contact improvisation and hooked on mastering the voice of choreographers he works with, Paul is a quintessential freelance dancer, thriving in the frantic artistic lifestyle. He shares the ways he makes it all come together, what keeps him engaged, what's tough along the way and what he's finding within his students. 

Trust your body, trust the timing, trust the silence of the room and let that teach your body. I’m lucky with the things I have taken on in my life - how much I get to not just appreciate and gawk but steal, be ravenous, be desirous. That’s what i want.
