About Neil Price
Neil started working with Indepen-dance in 2009 to deliver workshops for the weekly core programme. He joined Indepen-dance 4 in 2013 and has now worked with many well known choreographers, touring nationally and internationally. In 2017, Neil was awarded “Best Dance Performer in Scotland” by the Sunday Herald Scottish Culture Awards. This gave him the confidence and inspiration to create his own choreography. With the support of his uncle, Frank McConnell – Artistic Director of Plan B, Neil performed his first choreographic solo – Tantalus in March 2019; described as ”an intensely personal statement of aspiration and achievement in the face of pitfalls” and described the challenges that a young man with Downs Syndrome may encounter in life.
