And a few weeks ago, Nathan sat down with fellow Mechanical Vivienne Lee on Meridian Radio to talk about his inspiration to become a choreographer, involvement with the Olympics, favourite songs and plans for the future. Interestingly, one of the projects that Nathan is now working is with another London of the 2012 Mass Movement Choreographers. Basically, they started a […]
