An uplifting story of struggle, choreographed by Chad Taylor and scripted by writer & poet Courtney Hayles.

Persistence is based around a duet originally created by Chad Taylor and Natasha Gooden. The narrative of the piece takes the audience on an exciting journey of struggle, while remaining strong and having the strength to carry on, through all they come across in life, right through to the end.

Chad Taylor started dancing from the age of 11, training in the foundations of hip hop. At the age of 19 Chad graduated from the Hammond School with a National diploma in dance on a full scholarship.

He then went on to work in the professional world working with artist such as Cheryl Cole, Paloma Faith, Sade, Take That, Meatloaf, Joe McElderry, Little Mix and LMFAO. He has worked with choreographers such as Fatima Robinson and performed at the X-Factor Final at the O2 Arena, Brit Awards, and the Royal Variety Show. Chad has always had a creative side and has had a big interest in choreography. He has choreographed for CBBC program ZinZillers in 2012.
