MUSICAL THEATRE PROFESSIONAL • FREELANCE TEACHER • LOVER OF DANCE
“In Musical Theatre our job is to tell a story & to be able to do that through dance is where a performance really comes alive!"
Ryan trained at the Arts Educational Schools in London, graduating in 2010 with a BA Honours Degree in Musical Theatre.
Since then he’s had a diverse professional career performing in West End, regional & international touring productions of hit shows including 42nd Street, CATS, We Will Rock You, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory & The Wizard of Oz...
Director & Choreographer
'Ryan’s a colleague who I’ve worked with, for some years. I directed and choreographed his graduation performance at Arts Educational Schools and have since worked with him in many different capacities. He’s a great all round performer, with excellence in tap dancing. As an assistant & teacher, he’s patient, particular & full of encouragement & humour. His attention to detail is second to none. More recently, his choreography perfectly represented his students, in their agent showcase.'
Head of Musical Theatre, Royal Academy of Music
'Ryan is not only a consummate professional... incredibly skilled, hard-working and creative, but has the genius to teach each student as an individual with patience, kindness and understanding of their specific needs. We are incredibly fortunate to have him on our Musical Theatre Faculty here at The Royal Academy of Music!'
Principal, Big Little Theatre School (Bournemouth)
'It’s always wonderful when 'Big Little alumni' return to work with the current students. Ryan Gover has come to work with Big Little Theatre School’s Youth Theatre company theatre on numerous occasions. His professionalism and talent has always inspired the students, across the ages. He instinctively pitches each session to cater for the experience and ability of group, whether it be a full-on west-end audition style workshop to choreographing production numbers for the younger years. He pushes and encourages each student to achieve their personal best. His wealth of knowledge about the performing arts industry has hugely benefitted the senior 'Professional Development Programme' (PDP), as they prepare to audition for London Theatre Schools. We very much look forward to welcoming him back soon.'
