What you'll do

This family- friendly experience is perfect to get the whole family up dancing together, laughing & feeling active. In the hour we will then learn a section of the hand-jive from the original west end production of GREASE. Once all the choreography has been learned we will then performer is a number of times to get the heart rate up and so everyone can get how fit you have to be to perform these number 8 times a week, sometimes twice a day whilst also singing at the same time. The last 5 minutes we will have a little Q&A just in case anyone has any questions about what we have just done or my career, or if there are any attendee's that are budding performers you can ask about training or maybe you might just be interested for me to tell you what a normal day looks like when you are a WEST END dancer, taking you through all my daily rituals, any funny little habits that I do whilst preparing for the show and some secrets that you will never know about the theatre.

I am a West End performer who has been lots of experience in theatre, film and TV. Having performed in such shows as;
WICKED, GUYS & DOLLS, GREASE, THE LAST TANGO. Been in films like, ROCKETMAN and CUBAN FURY. also THE X FACTOR and THE ROYAL VARIETY on your televisions. Offering work shops to learn West End choreography to anyone who was hoping to see a show in London or is a fan of dancing. You can expect a bright and jolly atmosphere, to learn some original west end choreograph, hear some stories, back stage rituals and see some bits and bobs I've picked up during my time performing, with time at the end for any questions about the industry.

Grant is a treasure. I found out so many musical theatre terms (swinger) and his stories are first rate. I so envy him being in the Wicked company, and I hope that soon all the musical artists can get back to performing for the world. It was neat to just get a taste of a real dance class with a professional. Thank you

So much fun to have handsome, talented, and kind Grant carefully teach me a whole dance routine from the musical “Grease”! He has wonderful stories about his theater and movie experiences (he was in the movie, “Rocketman”!) Although it’s “hand jive” it’s a good workout, which he can tailor to your capabilities. He made me feel totally at ease and capable...and also like I could peer backstage at the life of a professional dancer. Just wonderful!!
