Nathan Clarke, associate director of the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony and creative director of BBC’s The Voice 2013, is the choreographer of the Grand Theatre’s Blackpool summer season.

Ooh La La and Step Back In Time both feature international performing stars and are hosted by comedy legends Cannon and Ball.

Nathan said about the two shows: “Audiences can expect to see two amazingly different shows with fresh and modern choreography. I have tried to keep Step Back In Time truthful to the roots that its musical journey takes, including specific choreography synonymous with the 60s, 70s and 80s. Audiences will also see exciting hip hop and street influences.

Ooh La La on the other hand is lead by sexy, sassy and sultry choreography. It relies heavily on the beauty and form of our cast, whilst also remaining classic and stylised.”
