Garry grew up in Bathurst NSW and began tap dancing at the age of 7. After discovering ballet at 14 decided to pursue this style further and moved to Melbourne to study at the Australian Ballet School for 4 years upon graduating he was offered a contract with The Australian Ballet Company with whom he danced with for ten years.
Having performed all over Australia and in iconic theatres on the world stage in places such as London, Paris, Tokyo, Shanghai and New Yorks’s Lincoln Center it was time to retire and put his tap shoes back on. Garry has reconnected with his love for tap dance and has since performed at the Australian Tap Dance Festival and on corporate gigs with TDC productions and Melbourne Tap Dance.
He currently teaches in Melbourne and is also is exploring his own creative ventures with tap dance which he is looking forward to bringing to the stage sometime soon. He was an ATDF Faculty member in 2019 and is excited to be back this year to continue sharing in this wonderful art form.
