What’s the point in coming home every night you know moaning about what you’ve been doing I wanna come home every night and go do you know what? that was amazing I’ve had a great day do you know what I mean? Why am I a dancer? I suppose as a kid I grew up watching Michael Jackson and breakdancing and we’d go on holiday quite a bit to Spain so I would dance in the clubs as a kid and win drinks for my Mum and Dad and I suppose that’s where it started. But, then in terms of dance as a career I never really thought about it and it was just little events in my life that kind of carved that pathway. I lost my left eye when I was five so I’ve never known really having vision out of two eyes and when I tell people that they always kind of go well how did you manage such a successful rugby career couple of lads asked me to go training when I was about 12 I went down, I got addicted to it training wise, I loved the physicality of it I liked the challenge and each year I got better and better and that led me to play for Great Britain at under-18s toured France come off that tour and I got British Player of the Year was having a whale of a time went down to play for Kingston Rovers and then got kneed in the side of the head had a seizure and stopped breathing died for just a short period of time. and they brought me back around you know, I had to choose really it has informed everything I’ve done since that period I need to be happy about what I’m doing and that’s what I try and pass on to other people you could be gone, like that. In people’s minds dance is so far away from rugby in my mind, they’re so closely linked I just realised that actually dance is pushing my body, in the same way that rugby pushes my body it was just a natural route for me it made perfect sense. Dancing just makes me feel different everytime I do it sometimes it can make me feel sad because I know it’s gonna come to an end. but, seeing other people listen to what you’ve got to pass on is what makes me really happy when you hear a beat kids either bounce their feet or clap their hands. We all have this innate thing to move it’s the word dance that’s the problem I work with the word movement yeah, I genuinely believe everybody can move.
