KARL NEWSAM

Principle / Musical Theatre Jazz Specialist

BA/PGCE/BBO Examiner/Adjudicator/UTDRT

Karl has had a passion for dance his whole life. Originally from Yorkshire, Karl has trained and performed across the country and the world. From performing in West End Musicals, dancing live on Top of the Pops, to cruise ships in the Caribbean, his love and passion for the Arts guided him to teach.

He now teaches as a Dance and Musical Theatre Lecturer at LIPA Sixth form College, recently graded as "Oustanding" from Ofsted, in Liverpool where he brings with him a wealth of expertise in dance, theatre and acting.

Karl is also an accomplished Choreographer, working on many projects in theatres, film and television and training school across the UK.

Karl opened Melt Dance because he believes that Jazz theatre dance and musical theatre shouldn’t be elitist. “Dance training should be an opportunity for all that have a passion for it, dance gave me an opportunity to do things I wouldn’t of had the chance to do otherwise”. Hence the name Melt - Motivate, Elevate, Live, Thrive - Dance.
