Jens has been active as a professional dancer since 1992 and as a choreographer 2 years later. He has been a central figure in the Danish dance scene as a choreographer, teacher and director. He has established spaces and opportunities for creation, residencies and youth programs.
As an award-winning choreographer he has throughout his career been active internationally, touring with group as well as solo works. He has created works for companies around the world as well as choreographing for TV shows such as "So you think you can dance" and "Dancing with the Stars".
As a dance-maker he has consistently explored dance as an abstract, transcendent form of expression, persistently followed his own choreographic direction. His style is spellbinding and displays a distinct ‘Scandinavian feel’, based on a consciousness of form and visual design.
Alongside teaching companies, universities as well as professional dancers, he has invested time in perfecting his teaching and coaching work resulting in eye opening and refined contemporary classes and ballet classes.
From 2010 to 2018 he has been working out of Beirut and he is co-directing Beirut Contemporary Ballet.
Jens is from 2019 based in Paris.
The Contemporary class of Jens Bjerregaard is based freely on Cunningham, yoga and release technique. The technical work emphasizes flow and solid body awareness - always conscious of creating and understanding connections within the body and beyond. The dancers are challenged to explore their possibilities and go further then their perceived limits. The physical body and the memory are explored equally thus creating a practical awareness and functional development of the movement.
Description of "Ballet - pour la danse contemporaine":
This is a challenging and fluid ballet class that explores not only the aesthetics of dance but also the functionality of movement and its origins. The aim is to demystify complicated technicalities and become aware of the chain of responses the body goes through to make movement happen freely and willingly. This class is aimed at Contemporary and other dancers who want to become smarter movers and use ballet classes as a universal training tool for dance.
