Montréal based George Stamos is a versatile artist and educator who has trained extensively in a diverse range of western contemporary / postmodern dance practices and specific Central African dance techniques. He has taught numerous independent workshops and classes at L'Université du Québec à Montréal and Concordia University. His specialization in teaching lies in the co-ordination of somatic exercises, structured improvisation and rhythm.
George is also known for creating performance that is physically dynamic, witty and queer. Over the past fifteen years he has produced work regularly in Montreal and toured across North America. George has also danced with many prominent choreographers including Benoit Lachambre, Sara Shelton Mann and Zab Maboungou.
In his formative years Stamos was a go-go dancer in Toronto, London, Amsterdam and NYC and he is a 1993 graduate of Amsterdam’s School for New Dance Development. Articles and reviews written by Stamos have been published online and in print by Canada’s leading dance magazine The Dance Current.
