Company Chameleon started when Anthony Missen and Kevin Edward Turner met at Trafford Youth Dance Theatre in the mid-1990s. Two ordinary lads from Manchester, they shared an ambition to dance professionally for a living. After developing their talent at Trafford, they trained at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and after graduating travelled extensively to work with some of the most innovative dance companies and choreographers in the world.
They returned home to Manchester in 2007, to achieve their goal of setting up their own dance company, and Company Chameleon was born. Today, Company Chameleon tour internationally to wide acclaim and perform over fifty indoor and outdoor performances a year. Everywhere they perform, they lead a dance class or workshop. As a result, they’ve introduced thousands of young people, from countries all over the world, to a different side of dance and movement.
What the audience say:
‘Fantastic performance … Just wow! What a great company!’
‘A great introduction to contemporary dance! I would recommend anyone go see this production…a funny, energetic, thoughtful, and powerful piece of work!’
‘Is it possible to fall in love with a dance company at first sight? I think I might just have’
‘Love love love it!’
