Bess Kuil is a dancer, performer, choreographer and dance teacher based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Specialized in African dance, modern dance, burlesque but also various partner dance styles, including Brazilian Zouk and contact improvisation, shows her versatility as a dancer and dance teacher.

Bess graduated at the Theater School in Amsterdam at the dancers department in 2016. She danced and performed in many different dance and performance styles in Europe and abroad (Senegal). 

What intrigues her the most about dance is the physical communication you can have with yourself, your dance partner(s) and the audience. Dance is a universal language, that everybody understands. You don’t have to be a professional dancer to communicate with your body, so everybody can speak it.

As a performer, choreographer, dancer and teacher, Bess mixes different styles and traditions. Her classes are about body awareness, physical communication, freedom in movement and the joy of dancing. The passion of this dancer is felt in all classes she teaches.

When I joined Bess’ course, I immediately appreciated the authentic, enthusiastic, and open atmosphere. Already after a few classes, I experienced a lot of personal development in techniques and confidence, and most of all; in enjoyment while dancing. I am inspired by Bess’ kindness as a person, talent as a dancer, and awareness as a teacher. She encourages her students to challenge themselves and break out of their comfort zone. Her optimism, tips, and support have been so stimulating for me that I decided to finally invest in my dream and start a bachelor program at a dance academy! I am super grateful to have found this amazing teacher in Amsterdam who knows how to read her students and give accurate feedback. Her passion for dancing is incredibly contagious and makes every class a pleasure to attend.

"Bess is erg gedreven in haar vak en heeft een verfijnd gevoel voor persoonlijke aandacht in het lesgeven. Ze leert je de juiste technieken aan en houdt daarbij rekening met je eigen manier van bewegen. Het allermooiste is het enthousiasme en de nadruk op het hebben van plezier bij het dansen. Ook haar gevoel van humor maken haar lessen een mijlpaal waar ik elke week naar uitkijk! "
