Kelsie is a neurodivergent dancer, choreographer, researcher and access consultant. Her integrated choreography has been produced by CRIPSiE, Nextfest and Good Women Dance Collective and she has performed with Sardines Dance and Emergency Exit Arts.

She recently completed a SSHRC-funded PhD, researching the accessibility of practices of timing in dance.

She is a member of the Critical Design Lab working on the design and disability podcast Contra* and is the Inclusive Practice Manager at Battersea Arts Centre, the world’s first Relaxed Venue. 

I’m hoping to gain clarity at a pivotal moment in my career.
