Michael’s practice utilises contemporary, Hip Hop, martial arts movement vocabulary and his teaching practice ranges from delivering advanced level technical training in vocational and HE settings, to working with different community groups with a focus on inclusion, particularly around disabled participants. As a teacher/tutor, he prides himself on encouraging excellence from students, achieving this through differentiating based on the needs of the individuals.

As a male of colour I can relate to their experience in both education and dance.
