We are delighted to announce the re-launch our Sway Street Dance classes with our new teacher, Shaun Angel.

Shaun started his training at the Urdang Academy London and went on to becoming a successful performer and choreographer in his own right. After graduating from the academy, Shaun then performed and work alongside a variety of theatre and television projects including shows for MTV, Disney, TOTP, The Box, BBC, ITV, T4 and many others of this calibre.

Shaun has had the privilege of performing on tour with leading pop acts such as Steps, 5ive, Blue, Westlife, Atomic Kitten, and at some of the UK’s most prestigious venues such as The Royal Albert Hall and all the major arenas around the UK including Wembley the NECs and the O2.

Most recently Shaun has spent his time passing on his knowledge and coaching at various performing arts schools and colleges, these include The Gary Lloyd Studio, LIPA, Central School of Dance and Drama, Future Faces,  Wheatly Dance Studio and the London Theatre School and also directing new ventures.
