    I am a highly experienced performer, choreographer and movement director, working across many theatrical genres from ballet to opera, musicals and theatre. I form one half of the choreographic duo, Piper & Chantry whose work includes the Olivier-nominated David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny, the Horrible Histories stage shows, a special anniversary commission for the Prince of Belgium.
