Adam Cooper
(On Your Toes)

Adam Cooper is undoubtedly one of the most versatile artists in the dance world, as his multiple contribution to On Your Toes fully demonstrates: dancer, choreographer, actor and singer. Famous internationally for his Swan in Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake, he was previously known to London audiences as a fine classical dancer with the Royal Ballet - and he was one of the stars in William Tuckett's Wind in the Willows and ENB's A Sea of Troubles. He has made choreography for Scottish Ballet and London Studio Centre (where he is now Consultant to the male dance students). A dance all-rounder.

Stephen Mear
(Anything Goes)

Stephen Mear's dances for Trevor Nunn's production of the wickedly hilarious Anything Goes habe received unrivalled praise in the British press. First at the Royal National Theatre (Lyttelton) and now on to that most prestigious home for musicals, Drury Lane, the Cole Porter shipboard extravaganza, with Stephen Mear's dances to sustain its carefree mood, is inevitably a hit. He came to it with experience not only in musicals, at home and abroad, but also opera and television, and he has twice been nominated for an Olivier Award as Best Choreographer.

William Tuckett
(The Wind in The Willows)

William Tuckett is now as well-known for his choreography as for his appearances with the Royal Ballet. His Wind in the Willows is in a class by itself, however. In an exceptional collaboration with the music and scenery and costumes, his dances express the characters to the great satisfaction of children and adults alike and it is no surprise that it is revived this Christmas. In early December a new work of his is being premièred by the Royal Ballet.
