Amanda Eyles has been working for more than thirty years as a rehearsal director, ballet mistress and choreologist, both in the UK and internationally. She has worked with a wide range of choreographers and directors on new creations and revivals of existing productions, at The Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, English National Ballet and Scottish Ballet, among others. Eyles currently works as a freelancer, teaching and staging the work of many different choreographers, ranging from Richard Alston to Frederick Ashton. She collaborates closely with Wayne McGregor. She is his assistant, notates his ballets and stages them for companies all over the world.
At the start of her career, Eyles specialised in Benesh Movement Notation (choreology), which still forms the basis of her work as a ballet mistress, rehearsal director and choreologist. From 2000 to 2001, she worked as Assistant Director and course tutor at the Benesh Institute at The Royal Academy of Dance, in London, and she is still actively involved with Benesh International.
