Graeme Spencer holds a BA(Hons) in Dance from the prestigious Laban Centre in London and a PGCE from the University of Brighton (Dance specialism).
He has over 12 years of experience as a teacher, lecturer and choreographer in schools, universities and vocational institutes in the UK and overseas. He started dancing at the age of 5 and has continued to pursue his passion, training in classical, commercial and contemporary styles.
His teaching career began when he took on the role of Head of Dance at a UK independent school in East Sussex. Since then he has championed dance across a diverse range of schools. His work has previously taken him overseas, where he worked across Sydney, NSW to develop his practice both as an educator and independent artist. He taught at the famous Sydney Dance Company Studios, worked in both Primary and Secondary education and as an artist in residence to develop work for youth dance companies.
After returning to the UK Graeme led vocational dance training across the South of England and home counties. He has a wealth of experience as a teacher and as a choreographer, having created performances for stage, site specific projects, dance film and collaborations with artists, actors and designers. He is also a STOTT certified Pilates instructor and has taught classes in gyms and health spas, as well as delivering one to one training.
Graeme has been with the Regents Performing Arts team for a year now. Already dance has made an incredible impact across the school – embedding the Juilliard dance curriculum, leading a variety of cross curricular collaborative projects and inspiring other Nord Anglia schools across South east Asia to build a stronger international dance community.
