Aidan has recently worked for BurnsWork, Liss Fain Dance, Amy Seiwert’s Imagery and Robert Dekkers’ Post:Ballet where he has performed in many of Dekkers’ works including the creation of Field the Present Shifts, earning a nomination for an Isadora Duncan award. Aidan spends his free time away from dance baking, throwing frisbees and playing tennis among other activities.
