"Occasionally someone rattles the arts industry cage so hard that they demand a rethink of what constitutes good, satisfying and important practice. In contemporary dance that player is Ryan Heffington" - Hold & Corner Magazine

Two-time Grammy nominated choreographer, director and performance artist, Ryan Heffington is a leading voice in contemporary movement. Awarded Performing Arts Innovator of the Year (2017) by the Wall Street Journal, Ryan’s choreography became a worldwide sensation with the debut of Sia’s music videos for 1000 Forms of Fear, including “Chandelier”, which has been viewed nearly 2 billion times, making it one of the most watched music videos in history. His work can be seen in television, film and on stages around the world, including his most recent work for Edgar Wright’s critically-acclaimed film Baby Driver, Netflix’s groundbreaking television series The OA, and Spike Jonze’s commercials for Kenzo (winner, 2017 Cannes Lions Festival) and Apple’s “Welcome Homepod” featuring FKA Twigs.

Ryan has collaborated with dozens of artists, including Arcade Fire, Paul McCartney, Lorde, Florence + The Machine, FKA Twigs, Sigur Ros, Lykke Li, Chet Faker, Massive Attack, Years & Years. His commercial clients include: Target, Evian, Acura, Kenzo, Stella Artois, Under Armour, Apple, Martini Rossi, and Nike. Ryan’s personal work has been presented at Museum of Contemporary Art (LA), Hammer Museum, LACMA, The Broad, Charlottenburg Palace and at The Ace Theater for David Lynch’s Distortion Festival. He makes his home in Los Angeles, where he continues to teach at his dance studio, The Sweat Spot.
