Paul trained in the United Kingdom at the Central School of Ballet, London. After four years of training in classical ballet and related subjects he embarked on his professional career. Paul spent three years performing in the Northern Ballet theatre and the Royal Ballet Company before moving into a more contemporary field. This is where his true passion for dance was fulfilled.

Paul worked with “The X-factor” Dance company in Edinburgh for two years, touring the UK and Europe. He then moved to The Scottish Dance Theatre Company in Dundee, working with Choreographers from all over the world. This was followed by The Dynamo Theatre Company in Canada, performing extreme contemporary dance pieces. Paul moved to Australia in 1999 and completed his stage career performing with The English National Opera, on large scale stage productions. Since being in Australia he has taught contemporary dance classes for secondary schools around Melbourne and Castlemaine.

Paul has been teaching Contemporary Dance at Inside Out since 2007. He is also the school’s artistic director.

“Dance is part of the heart, it comes from the heart and it effects the heart in amazing ways. To move is to be free, to dance is to feel the ultimate form of expression.”
