Gavin grew up in Motherwell and started dancing aged seven, learning jazz, hip-hop and tap. After that, he took up a vocational place at The Dance School of Scotland, before moving to London to attend English National Ballet School. During his graduate year, Gavin performed with Scottish Ballet in their production of Hansel & Gretel. Gavin later joined Northern Ballet in 2014, where he's danced in productions such as The Little Mermaid, Casanova and The Great Gatsby.

We'll be catching up with Gavin as he shows us more about the busy preparations for our spring season. Be sure to follow us and keep an eye on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat to catch a sneak-peak of his morning class, rehearsals and a Q&A session from our base in Leeds.
