Dorian Grant has been actively training in dance for 23 years. He has also been teaching and choreographing for 10 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), and at various venues in North America (St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, Canadian Stage, and Disney World). Dorian has trained with many high profile choreographers (Shawn Byfield, Chris Clarke) and choreographed hip-hop, tap and musical theatre shows and classes for all ages including the Fringe Kids Festival, numerous dance studios in Toronto, and various theatre productions including his debut production with his company, Good Job Sally in 2016.
