What the celebrities say about Chris...
"Chris is a highly skilled performer, choreographer and teacher. I first worked with Chris in the early days of Brent St, we have since shared the stage in Hot Shoe Shuffle, on screen in Bootmen and we continue to work together on and off stage. He has a wonderful way of communicating with the students and as a choreographer, Chris finds the truth in the project with humour and subtlety".
"As xlr8_arts dance studio AMBASSADOR, I am thrilled to support my husband, Chris, and contribute to this wonderful addition to the Melbourne performing arts community. Chris continues his family's legacy of quality dance and performing arts training. His mother, Kay Horsey, was a dance teacher on the Gold Coast for over 30 years".
"Chris and I began our careers at the same time on the hit show, Hot Shoe Shuffle. He has always been a leader in performing arts education and his many successes onstage and in the rehearsal room have embellished his teaching experience. On many ocassions I've turned to Chris when I need choreography for a TV show. He manages to find the heart of the performance with quality and style".
"Chris Horsey is one of the nice guys of this industry. He’s clever and crafty when it comes to choree and direction. Everything I’ve seen Chris in, or produce has been top shelf theatre. I always love getting together with Chris when we do SWING ON THIS, the choree is always tailored to every individual in the group and to the event or gig we are doing. I am especially in awe of how good he is with the kids (teaching the “Mini Me’s” a tap number in our show. The master of many talents is Christopher Horsey".
"I have known Christopher Horsey as a friend and colleague for over 20 years. I cannot recommend him highly enough as both teacher and performer. He is truly one of the best in Australia.
Christopher Horsey is undoubtedly the one I would want to teach my child. He is simply the best.
If you want brilliant technique, current world class choreography, and to be taught by one of the best in the profession, look no further.
My only advice is... RUN to his class. Don't miss out".
"Chris Horsey is a consummate world class performer and a highly regarded choreographer.
As a teacher he is generous and highly skilled in many forms of dance. Students will excel from his vast knowledge and professional experience. They will also be entertained by his great humour and inspired by his passion for creativity".
Our First Concert in 2022
We were so proud of our students and all they achieved at our first ever concert on Dec 08, 2022. The drama students and their monologues, group scenes and announcements. The Musical Theatre students shone brightly with their storytelling through song, dance and acting and the massive journey of improvemrnt and musicality from our tap dance students proved a crowd favourite.
Students from xlr8arts joined TV, Film and Theatre star LUCY DURACK in a wonderful performance to celebrate the opening of the newly renovated David Hatherell Hall at Albert Park Primary School on Sept 1. Our tap dance students, drama students and musical theatre students showed kindness, professionalism and excellence. Well done team :)
