Hello, i'm Nicky Burke, I am a dancer, singer and actor. In 2011 i graduated from the Jazz Company at London Studio Centre, since i've been a featured artist in commercials world wide. I am currently Head dancer for the UK Tour of the 50s & 60s show "Jukebox and Bobbysox". I played ensemble in the Camden Fringe play “Pinky Cagebirds” and have danced on “Britain’s Got Talent” and “West end Live” in London. I continue to challenge myself with new projects, most recently I played Genie of the Lamp in the Pantomime Aladdin. I climbed Kilimanjaro with a group of professional dancers last year to raise funds to build a school in Burkino Faso.
