Kuldip's fascination with the body and its capability for expression and physical exploration through dance fueled his desire to become a professional contemporary dancer. He completed his dance training at The Northern School of Contemporary Dance in 1992. He was a founding member of CandoCo Dance Company, working with them over a seven-year period, during which time he assisted in the development of the international education program, alongside performing extensively nationally and internationally. As a freelance performer he has worked with choreographers and companies such as Emilyn Claid, Lloyd Newson (DV8), Siobhan Davies, Darshan Singh Bhuller (Singh Productions), Annabel Arden (Theatre de Complicite), Kwesi Johnson (Kompany Malakhi), RJC Dance Company, Fidget Feet Arial Dance/Theatre Company, Attik Dance and Company Pyke. Additionally he worked as a choreographer, rehearsal director, choreographic advisor and mentor.

Kuldip's current performance work is based on his research into improvisation as a performanc practice, instant composition.

Throughout his career Kuldip has always been passionate about teaching and facilitating as a way to share practice and engage in the development of others. Prior to joining the team at Falmouth University he worked as an associate lecturer at Dartington College of Arts. Kuldip is currently senior lecturer and course coordinator for BA(Hons) Dance & Choreography at Falmouth University.
