Random String Fellowships
Jamaal Burkmar is a graduate from the Northern School for Contemporary Dance and a product of the ACE youth dance system, where he began his journey back in 2005. During his time as an undergraduate, Jamaal flourished as an artist and enjoyed great success particularly with his first piece of work, Ocean, which was choreographed in his second year. The excitement generated by this piece was instantaneous and led it to being reworked on Verve, the postgraduate company of NSCD. This commission marked the first time an undergraduate had been given the opportunity to work with the company. As well as receiving several commissions to work with dance companies around the country, Jamaal also recently was awarded the New Adventures Choreography Award which he is currently working on.
