    About me

    After A little time as a technologist in the Aerospace Industry, Brian studied modern dance at the, acclaimed, Laban Centre London. This lead to many contracts as both performer (Dancer, Actor, physical theatre) and teacher, nationally and internationally: touring in Dance, Opera and Theatre. Although trained as a contemporary dancer, contracts have developed and demanded a broad range of skills from actor through mime to physical theatre.
