Introducing Ben Davies, my wonderful commercial choreographer here at the Louie Spence Masterclass. Ben, or as I like to call him, the King of Commercial is a fantastically-talented choreographer and dancer. His sensationally-successful career first started at just 16 years old, when he choreographed and danced in Youth Dance Teams which went on to dominate the Youth Dance scene. Ben has a wealth of knowledge as both a dancer and choreographer, and I’m so excited that all you gorgeous dancers will be getting the chance to learn from him at a masterclass near you!
Expect high energy and big impact from Ben’s commercial class and your final dance lesson of the day. Commercial dance is usually associated with dance that is found in the media or on TV, such as background dancers. The class will involve learning an upbeat, fun and empowering commercial routine. The perfect way to finish your fabulous day at my masterclass in style!
