Jack Samuel Gill’s artistry has taken him from a Nobel Peace Prize Concert to the World
Ski Championships; from master teacher at the most prestigious dance festival in the world, Jacob’s Pillow, to that of the ground breaking 11 Countries Project in Belgrade, Serbia; from Buenos Aires sharing his dance knowledge on behalf of the multi award winning Ricky Pashkus to Greenland as part of a cultural exchange on behalf of his native Norway. Jack’s unique, powerful, smart and musical classes have thrilled dancers world wide-from Paris to Malaysia, Israel to India, Greenland to Serbia and throughout the USA. Jack is proud to have worked with some of the most influential and remarkable director/choreographers in the world of musical theatre. Among these, Chet Walker, the creator of the Tony Award winning “Fosse” and the Choreographic Tony Nominee for the Tony Award winning “Pippin” on Broadway. Jack first assisted Chet on the highly celebrated production of “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum” in Tel Aviv at the historic Cameri Theatre. Jack’s critically acclaimed performance as Ritchie in “A Chorus Line” at famed Chat Noir Theatre in Oslo was the second of many opportunities to collaborate with Walker. Jack has also danced for Tony Award winning choreographer for “in The Heights”, Andy Blankenbuehler; Broadway choreographer, Bob Richard; dance luminary, Shannon Lewis and Broadway legend Dana Moore. Several choreographies have been staged on Jack by jazz dance artist and Broadway veteran Bill Hastings. The world of Television and Cinema now occupy most of Jack’s attention. Most recently choreographing and partnering Canada’s first place winner of So You Think You Can Dance, Tara Popowich, in the extraordinary Indian version of Dancing With the Stars. Consistently praised by the judges for his great dance and choreographic abilities, Jack quickly became a fan favorite. Renowned producer of that TV hit, Remo d’Souza, asked Jack to be his assistant for the spectacular Bollywood movie, Happy Ending! Jack subsequently found himself staging large groups of American dancers in L.A. and San Francisco. A second much awaited film, ABCD2 (Any Body Can Dance 2) has Jack dancing and acting in a featured role and, once again, making choreographic contributions.
