Shaun Paul Smith
Hey there! I’m Shaun and I teach a range of dance styles.
I care about our students’ progression through the commercial dance courses we offer. I take care of teaching and choreographing new pieces for our classes. The dance styles that I specialise in teaching include B-Boying, Hip Hop, House, Jazz, Locking and Popping.
I’ve worked across Europe on a range of productions including the Mad Hatters Tea Party at the Linbury Theatre, The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London. I’ve done quite a bit of TV work, too. I have also had the pleasure of working with Take That on the Brit Awards, Justin Bieber on the X Factor and Katie Perry on X Factor, to name just a few.
I love commercial dance. I also love the relationship between movement and music, and setting choreography so that it’s in line with the instruments and beat. I love teaching dance nearly as much as dancing – it’s great to see a student nail a new dance move after hours and hours of practice and hard work! If you love dance, and you put in the hard work, you’ll have success!
