An excellent video backdrop and one of the best song choices of the night - Cut Chemist and Hymnal's What's The Altitude? - ensured it easily ranked with the international acts on display

...let me tell you, the point of break dancing I have never understood. Please. Break dancing? Forget about it. Until now, suddenly I understand the point of hip-hop footwork. Suddenly break dancing is meaningful. The entire history of breakdancing has been leading up to this show. The hip-hop guy and the flamenco dancer have dance-offs demonstrating, like you have never seen, the common language and familial connection of all dance forms

...Scot’s dancer Nico Major [DR. BEAT], who dresses like a gangsta rappers’ henchman

and moves with the facility of The Gloved One. [Michael Jackson?!?]

=G-Force= 2013


a Bright Night International production.


A performance I was never meant to be in... I was the dance tutor on this 10 week project, aimed at 16-25 year olds, fusing Circus, Parkour, Acro and Dance, culminating in a performance at the internationally renowned Edinburgh MELA Festival. At the last moment one of our key performers wasn’t able to make it... so I stepped in last minute to take his place :)


I thoroughly enjoyed this one!!
