    Biography:

    Bennyroyce Royon is a Filipino-American director, choreographer, and dancer based in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA in Dance from The Juilliard School in 2006. As a performer and collaborator he has worked on Broadway (The King and I), Off-Broadway (Artist of Light), at The Metropolitan Opera (Madama Butterfly, Turandot, The First Emperor), at the New York Philharmonic (The Cunning Little Vixen), and with dance companies including Armitage Gone! Dance, Sidra Bell Dance New York, Carolyn Dorfman Dance, Alaska Dance Theatre, The Nilas Martins Dance Company, Collective Body Dance Lab, Cas Public, and Bad Boys of Dance.

    Royon has been noted by The New York Times for his "keenly focused, succinct way with movement." He has worked with choreographers Aszure Barton, Karole Armitage, Darrell Grand Moultrie, Christopher Gattelli, Greg Zane, Sidra Bell, and Carolyn Dorfman, among others. He has appeared on PBS Great Performances, Good Morning America, and the music videos of Son Lux and My Brightest Diamond.

    As a choreographer, Royon has received commissions from Atlanta Ballet, Ballet Hispánico, Point Park University, and The Joffrey Academy of Dance to name a few. His works have been praised by dance critics as "unexpected and heart-stoppingly dramatic" and "refreshingly original." He has received two CUNY Dance Initiative residencies, Velocity Dance Center’s Creative Resident Award, and The Joffrey Ballet’s Winning Works Choreography Award. He is a Dance Motion USA Follow-On PDP alumnus.

    In 2010, he founded Bennyroyce Dance, a project-based contemporary dance company. His company has performed at venues in New York City including The Joyce Theater, Baruch Performing Arts Center, Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture, Bryant Park Presents, and more.
