'Beautifully executed… wild and punchy energy' - Anna Rachael McBride
Shaun studied contemporary dance at the University of Roehampton, graduating in 2012 with a BA Hons in Dance Studies. Shaun has established himself as an exciting new and upcoming London based choreographer, seeing his first professional work RISE gain a 4* review. He then went on to create his first solo work Hiraeth (2014), which has been performed around the UK, and Жінки (2014) for which he received mentorship from the BalletBoyz. Shaun created the short work 'TIDAL' on the ‘Lord of the Flies’ Legacy cast for London in collaboration with Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures and Re:Bourne which was performed at Sadler's Wells. Shaun created ‘Verge’ and 'We Stand Alone Together' as part of Resolution at The Place. Shaun is also a technique teacher at Creative Academy.
