Benjamin Muller studied contemporary dance at the Kunsthumaniora in Brussels. After this, he went on to study at ArtEZ college of arts as a dancer/maker. He appeared as a dancer and choreographer in re:renaissance, in a short study of counterpoint. Furthermore, he was a dancer with Rogie CS in the project RE/TURN, and can now be seen as a dancer with B-Classic. Besides his dance activities, Benjamin also teaches. He teaches contemporary dance at the Genk Academy of Music, Word and Dance, and at the Arts Humanities he teaches subjects such as dance technical skills and improvisation/composition.

The Genk-based choreographer/dancer was commissioned by the B-Classic Festival to create a performance in which, together with two other dancers (Genk native Jochem Eerdekens and Hella Vanhemelrijck) as well as two musicians, he interprets the famous ballet Petrushka to music by Stravinsky in his own, contemporary way.
