Kunal Ranchod




Kunal Ranchod began his professional dance training at the age of 18 at Ryerson University’s Theatre School. Ranchod’s four years at Ryerson allowed him the opportunity to explore a magnitude of contemporary movement and find a love for the craft of choreography. Ranchod graduated in 2013 with a Bachelors of Fine Art.

Whilst at Ryerson, Ranchod trained in Ballet, Jazz, Modern and Acting under the tutelage of Nadia Potts, Vicky St Denys, Karen Duplisea and Marianne McIssac respectively. During his four years he had the good fortune of dancing in several new creations by: Kate Hilliard, Valarie Calam, William Yong and a musical tribute to Des Macanuff by broadway choreographer Mindy Cooper. In his graduating year he was asked to dance a soloist role in a re-staging of David Earl’s epic masterpiece Sacra Conversione.

Following his graduation from Ryerson, Ranchod chose to pursue more classical training at École Supérieure De Ballet Du Québec. At École Supérieure Ranchod trained in both Classical Technique and Contemporary Technique with Samuel Abramian, Jesus Corrales, Andrea Boardman and Sophie-Estel Fernandez. Whilst at ESBQ Ranchod danced in new creations by James Gregg, Andrew Skeels, Edgar Zendejas and repertoire by Mauro Bigonzetti and Vicente Nebrada.

Ranchod has also explored the craft of choreography; throughout the past seven years he has choreographed numerous works that have seen the likes of international stages including India, Japan, Canada and The United States. Most recently he has choreographed commissions for The Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Carte Blanche gala Montreal and The Luminato Festival. Notably, in the summer of 2014 Ranchod launched his own project based company “Compagnie Kunal Ranchod”, their opening season garnered positive reviews and a sold out house. As a young emerging dancer and choreographer Ranchod is interested in exploring various avenues of creation and performance.
