choreography

 

I have worked with skaters, actors and dancers across the globe. Some small productions, some large and individual pieces that have gone on the be in shows for many years, (from World Professional Skating Champions, to Cirque du Soliel members, soloists, large ensemble numbers etc...). Every time I work with skaters and choreographers I learn something new and feel like I grow. Every person I have helped or worked with has taught me something not only about creating something beautiful but also about myself. So many people influence me each time I come in contact with them and each time I see something new and wonderful in skating and the world.

This is just a small selection of where my road has taken me - I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I learnt and was blessed making them....!

Disney On Ice Pre-Show, Perth, Australia

I worked with the skaters from the WAISA (Western Australian Ice Skating Association) for the pre-show whilst Disney’s Treasure Trove show was playing Perth, Australia in May 2014.

It was a great pleasure to work with the amateur skaters in their first adventure into the professional skating world.......

I would like to thank Vietarra Productions from Indonesia for making our stay there a time to remember. The way myself and the entire cast was treated was beyond amazing and we all hope to return there again one day.....!

(Holiday On Ice, Europe)

Colours of Dance & Aladdin On Ice (In-Shows).

Most tours with Holiday On Ice have an in-show event where the skaters have the chance to show their skating to the company in the hopes of advancing their career/s. Anyone that wants can put together a piece and show the company. I have choreographed many pieces for skaters on tour - too numerous to name individually. I have selected 2 pieces to add to this page. One of a number I choreographed for a group of girls which was called “Woman”. A self explanatory number.....!

(Phantasialand, Germany)

Glacier Ice Consortium & Phantasialand Amusement Park.

“Cold Rhythm”.

I assisted Mrs. Manuela Löfelhardt in the choreography for the park show in Phantasialand. Manuela had an extensive career as a dancer herself and adding her knowledge to work with was a creation alone. Skaters and dancers have the ability to work closely together and create thought provoking pieces. Manuela’s ability to evoke rhythm in everything she does expands not only a show but your own life. Thanks Manuela.....!

(Chicago, U.S.A.)

Lazarro Productions at the Drury Lane Theatre.

“The Nutcracker On Ice”.

Whilst performing in “Las Vegas On Ice” at the Drury Lane theatre the joint company of Lazarro Productions also ran a show called “The Nutcracker On Ice”. I was hired as skater/actor liaison and choreographer for the show with it’s unique “in the round” environment with audience on all 4 sides and a very small ice surface - creating an interactive show for children. Working with skater’s and actors that had never had a pair of ice skates on in their lives. I choreographed and staged live dialogue, acting, singing and scripts. Expanding my career doing this show opened visions that broadened not only my mind but my creative view of “ice/stage” entertainment.

Fuentes Gasca / Richard Porter Prods.

Assisted and worked with Minnie Madden. Helping re-choreograph Hollywood On Ice, (soloist sections).

My first choreography gig. Minnie impacted me in ways I cannot explain and taught me for the very first time to think outside of the box. It was and still is her passion and excitement for life I see & feel when I choreograph today. Thanks Minnie - you affected my life in more ways than you will ever know.
