Texas Native Greg Graham Returns Home as Part of TexARTS' Masterclass Series, 11/11

TexARTS will welcome Broadway performer and choreographer Greg Graham and his "Billy Elliot" masterclass, Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Graham is currently the associate choreographer for both national touring productions of Billy Elliot and served as the resident choreographer for the Tony Award-winning Broadway production.

Originally from Texas, Graham was cast in his first Broadway show, FOSSE, just four days after moving to New York City. He has appeared on Broadway in CHICAGO and NEVER GONNA DANCE, which was choreographed by Jerry Mitchell. At that time, Mr. Mitchell asked him to serve as the dance captain for the original Broadway production of HAIRSPRAY. Later, he became the associate choreographer of the 1st national tour and the South African production of HAIRSPRAY. He also worked with Mr. Mitchell as an associate choreographer for the Broadway production of DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS.

Graham was seen in the Julie Taymor film ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, and more recently in the NBC television hit, SMASH.

Mr. Graham is now venturing into his own world of choreography. He has created works for the TV series UGLY BETTY and CELEBRITY FIT CLUB as well as the Russell Crowe film STATE OF PLAY.

In this masterclass, Austin area actors, singers and dancers will have the opportunity to work with this accomplished performer and learn the original Broadway choreography of selected numbers from Billy Elliot. This is an excellent opportunity for area performers to work with an outstanding talent, sharpen their skills and have fun.

The cost is $45 and dancers of all levels are welcome. Classes will be held at TexARTS in the Erin Doherty Studios (2300 Lohmans Spur, Suite #160, Lakeway, TX). For more information or to enroll, visit http://www.tex-arts.org/billyelliot.html or call 512-852-9079 x 104.
