Johan Inger brings a distinctive Swedish flavor to contemporary dance -- it isn’t easy to pinpoint the specifics, but the honesty, humanity, and humor shine through. Classically trained, he gravitated swiftly to contemporary dance as a high-profile performer and later choreographer with Nederlands Dans Theater. His works, contemporary dance with a classical edge, and recently including highly successful narratives, are in the repertoire of companies across Europe and the USA.

WHO INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?
Your Answer?...CLICK HERE
- Andrea S. - Different choreographers inspire me for different reasons, but definitely giants such as Balanchine, Kylian and Forsythe.
- Allison C. - Isadora Duncan has a profound impact on me both as a dancer and a choreographer.
- Rachel T. - When I'm working, I'm most inspired by my dancers. My choreography doesn't take shape until I'm in the studio with my dancers. Watching them perform a new phrase or discussing a concept with them inspires me to expand the idea in directions that I couldn't have come up with on my own.
