Aaron Dwyer is a dancer, choreographer and the founder of TAKE THE STAGE...
Aaron came to dance later than most and started classes in his early teens - but he took to it quickly and found a lifelong love for the expression of dance. Aaron went on to train at Liberatus before gaining a place at Laine Theatre Arts. Although Aaron received a scholarship for his fees he still needed to raise funds in order to attend and so Aaron produced his first show - which raised over £5000 to help with his studies. This experience also sparked Aaron’s love for producing and the creative side of theatre and he was successful in obtaining the necessary scholarships to secure his place at Laine which allowed him to complete the full 3 year Diploma course.
Upon graduation, Aaron's first professional job was dancing in three spectacular shows in America. Once he returned to the UK he returned to the love that had sparked in the years prior and began teaching and choreographing. Aarons choreography credits include, Fame, Summer Holiday, Rent, Spring Awakening, Billy Elliot, and Crazy for you.
Aaron found teaching to be his first love and he ran the London Dance Company from 2012-2019 with his competition team gaining national titles on the UK competition circuit. Having spent many years developing his own technique for Jazz, which he teaches in both intensive workshops and weekly classes (BASE & Pineapple Studios), Aaron has taken this method around the world from Italy to China and the US, where he has worked with some of the biggest international dance schools.
Having identified a need for a more person centred and education based dance event during his time with the London Dance Company, Aaron founded TAKE THE STAGE with the aim to begin a revolution of UK dance competitions and allows us to compete with the much more established US counterparts. Aaron would love to see TAKE THE STAGE enter the international arena and has the aim to hold a global competition in just a few years in order to have the best dancers from around the world all compete together!
