Henning Rübsam

Henning Rübsam is a senior contributor to The Dance Enthusiast and also the artistic director and choreographer of NYC based SENSEDANCE. Rübsam was asked to join The Dance Enthusiast after sharing his Audience Review of a season of NYCB.   
After earning his B.F.A. degree from The Juilliard School, where his mentors included Martha Hill and Elizabeth Keen, he danced with choreographers Duncan Macfarland, Murray Louis, and Alwin Nikolais. He had the great fortune to work closely with artists as diverse as Eva Evdokimova and Beverly Blossom. Rübsam is the recipient of a Jerome L. Greene Fellowship, a Lincoln Center Fellowship, a Manhattan Spirit Award for "best male dancer,” a choreography award from Stephens College, and an award for his advocacy from Dancers Responding to AIDS. He is on faculty of Juilliard (since 2006) and Ailey/Fordham. He holds a master's degree from Hunter College.
