Passionate, genuine and welcoming teacher. It was helpful to take time to understand the dance style, movements and song, and then, to learn and let go through a beautiful choreography. Thank you so much!
Dorian Grant has been actively training in dance for 20 years. He has also been teaching and choreographing for 7 years. It started at the age of 3 when he began tap dancing. This was after his mother caught him attempting to reenact Shirley Temple movies on the living room coffee table. He spent much of his childhood training and competing in dance studios for different competitions around the Greater Toronto Area and the United States. At 14, he was accepted into Cawthra Park Secondary School's Regional Arts Program for Dance. This school allowed him to train in modern, ballet and jazz as well as perform at many venues and events both in Canada and the USA. During this four year period, he acted in many community theatre shows with Meadowvale Music Theatre where he received his first opportunity as a choreographer's assistant. Over the years, he has performed on live television (TSN, Roger's, YTV), at various venues in North America (St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, Liberty Grande, and Disney World) Dorian has trained with high profile choreographers and choreographed hip-hop, tap and musical theatre shows/classes for all ages including the Fringe Kids Festival, After-School programs, and various theatre productions. Dorian is excited to be apart of the CDC Youth Program Tap to share his dance knowledge with the next generation of dancers.
