ianI am an ex-professional dancer of the National Ballet of Canada and Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, with extensive experience in both classical and contemporary work. I also have appeared in several musicals, including the West End revival of "Cabaret", choreographed by Javier de Frutos, and the UK/European tour of "Cats". I have choreographed for the Stephen Godfrey Choreographic workshop at Canada's National Ballet School (where I received my training), The National Ballet of Canada's Young Choreographer's workshop, Performers College, The School of Ballet Theatre UK, and more.

This work is a series of vignettes inspired by the music of Ezio Bosso, exploring how different choices and paths that people take affect their lives. My life has been uprooted several times due to simple choices that I have made; I have moved countries, made career changes, and I always look back in wonder and say "who would have thought a short time ago that I would be here today doing this?" It is often never where we think we would be, however our deviation from the path we thought we were on created an entirely new one. This is especially important to me as I prepare to move back to Canada in August of this year, making a big change yet again.
