Connor is a performer in the new Casson & Friends and Stopgap Show: Night at the Theatre

How are you involved with Casson & Friends?

I was first acquainted with Tim whilst training on the Jasmin Vardimon Company's JV2 programme. He was the course leader and I a student. He taught me a great deal, and provided some truly invaluable tools for me to take with me into my career. 

Since graduating I became a friend of Tim's, until late 2015 when I upgraded my friendship and became and official 'Friend' working with Tim on a new family production with Stopgap Dance Company, called Night At The Theatre. It was a pleasure to be in the studio again with Tim.

What do you love about dance?

I love that it can bring people together who may otherwise never have met. I love that it can be used a tool to heal people. And I love that it is my job.... (Which is also hilarious) 

What song always makes you dance?

Candi Staton - Young Hearts Run Free
