Dana Fouras in Russell Maliphant Company's Conceal | Reveal

Dana Fouras and Russell Maliphant met 21 years ago, and they’ve been in a partnership of one kind or another ever since. When their son Jude (now 15) was a baby, the couple still toured with him in a sling, each one taking turns nursing him whilst the other performed on stage. But their Partridge Family-style touring ambitions shifted after the birth of their daughter Aysa, with Dana deciding to stop dancing to provide the children with the stability they needed. Now, 10 years on, she is back performing, this time for Russell Maliphant Company.

The couple talked to Sarah Crompton about what keeps their partnership thriving after all these years.

“The qualities that Dana has in spades are beautiful elements that I want to work with,” Maliphant says. “Her movement has a flow not just through the b ody but through space, which is what I want to see. And if I say I want to try something, she will know how to do it and look great.” Fouras returns the compliment. “I would want to work with Russell even if I wasn’t married to him, because he has such integrity, he is such an explorer. He has always got something fresh to bring.”
