Who is Corey Baker?

Corey is an award-winning choreographer and filmmaker from Christchurch. With a passion that dance is for everyone, he takes dance out of traditional settings and puts it into parks, playgrounds, stadiums, shopping centres, rugby fields, on TV & film and now even Antarctica.

After being touched by dance through an outdoor performance at Hagley Park at the age of seven, Corey has made it his life mission to make the world of dance and theatre accessible to anyone by creating experiences in the outdoors.

Corey trained as a classical dancer in Christchurch and Sydney before moving to Switzerland to dance at Ballet Theatre Basel. Corey relocated to the UK in 2008 to join BalletBoyz and has continued to dance for many acclaimed companies and choreographers.

Corey started Corey Baker Dance in 2010 to create and produce his own work. Alongside the company, Corey has also collaborated on many projects as rehearsal director, choreographer, teacher, movement director, and mentor.
