I love dancing for and with other women! There is a deep longing and knowledge within all women of the need for sisterhood and circle. We are not only here to support each other rise but to be the lap onto which tears fall on when we stumble down. Together we walk, breath, dance, laugh, seek pleasure, find belonging, open, unravel, scream, laugh and be wild. What a gift we are to each other, how essential we are to each other
Introducing @george_grayson19..... “I started dancing at the age of 5 in my local dance school in Hampshire, where I trained in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz. At the age of 14 I gained a place on the Laban Trinity (CAT) program where I trained in Contemporary and Ballet getting to work with Wayne McGregor company, Arthur Pita and The Royal Ballet. After graduation from Laban, I gained a scholarship at Laine Theatre Arts where I trained for 3 years in Musical Theatre/Dance. During my time at Laine I was lucky enough to get some work though my agent and performed in Pantomimes in Hastings and Glasgow. Also in my second year at the college, through auditions I worked on BBC’s Strictly and ITV’s Sunday Night at the Palladium. I graduated Laine in the summer of 2016 and started working on Kinky Boots two weeks after leaving college. I was over the moon to be joining the cast of Kinky in the West End and had the best two years there as one of the Angels. In my second year I was offered to be the Assistant Dance Captain/Swing on the first UK Tour of the show. I am loving getting to play a number of different roles in the show and being a part of such an amazing show. I am currently working on the show at the moment at The Birmingham Hippodrome.” Book your place now on this upcoming workshop!! 10th February.
