Nathan Lafayette

Birmingham based freelance dance teacher, choreographer and founder of hip-hop theatre company Jigsaw Collective, Nathan Sebastian Lafayette started with Bboying at DX under Mickael ‘Marso’ Rivière in 2004 and now is our resident Hip-Hop teacher.

His perspective on teaching lies within the promotion of educating history, foundation and Terminology of the style but a strong focus on personal development within a comfortable but challenging space.

He is a strong advocate for crossing bridges between movement and is focused on the development and profiling of street dance artists working in and outside of the theatre space.

Nathan was awarded the DX choreoaward spring 2018 title and continues to develop solo work as well as group work.
