As a diversified performer, Lisa brings her experiences and education to her choreography. Having trained classically at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School in Canada, she facilitated her training with Graham and Cunningham. Influenced by Fosse and Jack Cole, her technique and style brought her to London, England where she performed in the original West End cast of CHICAGO and then BOMBAY DREAMS. While in England, Lisa performed in the films PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and JOSEPH & HIS AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT and was a back-up singer for POP IDOL (pre-cursor to American Idol). She has performed for Her Majesty the Queen, performed alongside Shirley Bassey and Tom Jones, and infiltrated the music video world by fusing hip hop with Fosse. After 8 years in London, Lisa moved to New York and took on the role of Associate Choreographer for BOMBAY DREAMS on Broadway, then consequently took over as choreographer for its U.S. Tour.
