More about Billy:

Midlands-born Billy has always had a passion for music, leaning to play the drums for the school band, but it wasn’t until the age of 21 that he found his talent for dance.

Despite no formal training, Billy utilised his self-taught skills to start down the path of becoming a dancer and an artist, forming his own Deaf dance crew and travelling the world meeting Deaf dancers.

Billy believes that it doesn’t matter if you are deaf or disabled, he wants to motivate young artists by showing them that anyone can dance.

Having worked with schools and youth theatres across the UK, FRONTLINE Arts Festival are excited to be bringing Billy’s unique talent to local young dancers.

Find out more about Billy's work here.

FRONTLINE Arts Festival runs from 1st October to 1st November and features an inclusive programme of professional, high-quality artistic work created by, and for, disabled people, alongside fully inclusive workshops, talks & activities to engage and inspire the next generation of new & emerging disabled artists.

All of our events are 'Pay What You Decide' and will have suggested prices at each event.
