Originally born in London, Rhys is from a Jamaican & Barbadian heritage. He began dancing at a young age in Hip-Hop and went on to study at conservatoires, Northern School of Contemporary Dance and later graduated from London Contemporary (The Place).
Since graduating, Rhys has co-founded the black-led contemporary dance company FUBUNATION and has been choreographing, curating events and artistic platforms for the company since. He has worked with high profile music artists and was most recently featured in the Disney plus released Beyonce film Black is King, and has toured internationally with an array of contemporary dance companies, performing and teaching workshops throughout the UK and overseas.
He believes in movement as a form of therapy and thrives on the collaborative approach to making work. He feels it is a great responsibility to create art that can exist strongly within communities as much as it does on a higher scale.
