It's been an amazing experience working with Hackney Empire on 'Macbeth'. I truly enjoyed the whole process working with such a talented cast of actors, singers, dancers and musicians. They gave a brilliant performance on stage and words couldn't describe how proud I am of their achievements.
A special thanks to Susie McKenna, all the creative team involved in 'Macbeth' and Hackney Empire.
Working on this project was such an amazing experience as a choreographer. I enjoyed the research and development stage and the actual showcase performance at Talawa Theatre Company was absolutely amazing. It was a great privilege to work with such a talented cast.
I look forward to the next stage...
I have been given the opportunity to teach Street Dance classes through The Family Church and Whittington Park Community Association. The classes are a great way to build confidence, team work and self esteem through the enjoyment of dance.
So come by and enjoy the dance experience EVERY MONDAY!!!
HOSEA'S GIRL written and directed by Anastasia Osei-Kuffour and choreographed by Leroy Fx Dos Santos is a new spoken word and streetdance play being developed with the support of Talawa Theatre Company.
'I'm cryin...because I've never felt this way before, you move the ground from underneath my feet, earthquake shakin all parts of me, rearrangin the broken parts of my heart.
Suddenly you’re pulled away, we're apart, and I'm reachin out to you but I can't see you anymore, cloud after cloud after black cloud enters our perfect sky,..'
Hosea's Girl is about love, the choices we make in the pursuit of love, our insecurities, weaknesses and fears that can stop us making the right choices and can lead to unfortunate consequences. Lyndsey's a young woman who's had a string of broken relationships, Hosea is drawn to her and hopes to make a difference but Lyndsey's still figuring out what she wants.
This showcase performance happening on Friday 19 June 2015 is the first step in getting Hosea's Girl to full production. There will be various industry professionals at this performance and we hope to show them the play and invite them to support us in getting it to a full production at a theatre with a 3/4 week run.
There are limited tickets to the showcase performance so if you want to come you need to book early.
It was such a blessing working at The Hackney Empire. I loved every moment of the sharing as the students worked really hard and in the end they shined through their performance.
This experience was very rewarding as I was able to inspire, motivate and lead aspiring dancers to be the best they can be.
I am really looking forward to teaching at Hackney Empire this week over half term. This week will be about learning, sharing and inspiring each other through dance. We'll be looking at some Popping, Hip Hop choreography and self exploration through dance.
It's been such a great pleasure working with the 1st years at Middlesex University (Hendon Campus). Our first week of intensive rehearsals ended on a great note and now I can't wait to develop the piece further. I am definitely looking forward to the next few rehearsals. #Excited #Newworks #Choreography #MiddlesexUni
This was a great opportunity for me to teach a weekend dance workshop in Gloucester. Absolutely amazing!!!
I enjoyed building this routine as its perfectly in line with my fusion form of choreography style known as 'FX Dance'. I enjoyed teaching this to The Company Dance Academy.
I am looking forward to creating a new dance piece with Middlesex University students in January 2015. This will be another great opportunity for me to establish my form of choreography style and to see how well its interpreted with different dancers.
Exciting moments ahead.....
I had a lovely workshop at this school as the students were really enthusiastic and prepared to work hard. I taught two sessions covering the dance styles of Hip Hop and Contemporary. Overall this was another great experience for me to share my expertise.
This week has been one of the most exciting weeks of my career as well as one of the most challenging weeks of my career.
Not only have I recently become a lecturer at Middlesex University teaching choreography but I have also started a new mentoring role with an organisation helping young youths in senior school with difficult backgrounds.
The dynamics in both roles have really challenged but inspired me in so many ways. A very rewarding week and I feel very blessed and privileged to be undertaking these new opportunities.
Creative time....working on a new concept video. Looking forward to getting in the studio and choreographing some new steps. I am very excited and got a good feeling about this...
Its always important to establish your ideas before creating them...
What an amazing day it was. Young kids are the new generation and it's so rewarding sharing your skills, wisdom and experience. Jordon did really well on his first session with me and has already made major improvements.
Good times ahead. Well done Jordon!!
Check out an interview I done with photo magazine in the summer. It was a great day and a wonderful experience. A special thanks to Steve Thewis and Jane Kelly.
