Meet Gareth, one of my brilliant commercial choreographers here at the Louie Spence Masterclass. Gareth was born and raised in Nottingham and fell in love with dance when he took his first class at the age of 16. He soon began attending classes around the UK and a year later travelled overseas to Los Angeles! Here Gareth trained in numerous styles at Debbie Reynolds Studios, Millennium Dance Complex and, later, at Movement Lifestyle under the tuition of world-renowned instructors including Tony Tzar.
Gareth started his fabulous professional career at the age of 21 and in recent years has gone on to work with some of the biggest names in the business including Mariah Carey, Cheryl Cole, Coldplay, Take That, The X Factor, and The Voice UK. He has also appeared in commercials for Cartoon Network, Nokia, Morrisons, Cadburys, and featured in hit Bollywood movies.
Throughout these experiences, Gareth has had the opportunity to work under top choreographers such as Tony Testa, Fatima Robinson, Adrian Wiltshire, Kim Gavin, and Aicha McKenzie. Through this, he gained valuable knowledge which has helped him develop not only as a dancer but also as a choreographer and creative artist.
Gareth has a fantastic eye for choreography and in recent years has developed a love for teaching his craft! He believes that you are forever a student so continues to study, train himself, and feed this back into his students. Gareth is a spectacular addition to my wonderful #DreamTeam and I can’t wait for him to share his knowledge with all you gorgeous dancers at one of my upcoming masterclasses!
