So You Think You Can Dance: Chris Piper
Chris Piper is a cheeky chappie and life and soul of the party.
Born in October 1983 in Birmingham, Chris grew up in Dorset before finally moving to London to realise his dream to be a dancer.
At an early age Chris trained as a Latin and ballroom dancer but at 14 joined a theatre school, which made him realise he wanted to do more than dance. He received scholarships to various colleges, but chose to study at Bodywork Company Dance Studio in Cambridge between the ages of 18 and 21.
Chris was in the original cast of Celtic Tiger with Michael Flatley, and has appeared in musicals such as Fame, We Will Rock You, Desperately Seeking Susan and Flashdance.
He has also appeared in the film Sylvia starring Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as The Dame Edna Show and various TV commercials.
