Dominic Cooper-Clarke
Dancer, Actor
“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going”
– Beverly Sills

Born and raised in Birmingham, England; Dominic grew up around a musically influenced family, ranging from vocalists to music production. Being part of a Gospel choir, he grew up singing both locally and worldwide, from all across the UK, to South Africa. It wasn’t until his secondary years where he found his love and passion back on the stage.

Having only been dancing for a short period of time compared to most, Dominic believes that “hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” In spite of his relatively tender years, he has been noticeably seen on Britain’s got talent, and even won the UDO Street Dance World Championship with his former crew, High Definition. Since being in Canada, he has worked with the likes of Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Victoria Duffield, Scott Helman and The Toronto Raptors.

During his time in Toronto, Dominic has had the opportunity to receive mentorship from Toronto’s leading Influential Choreographers and Artistic Directors such as Shavar Blackwood, Leon Blackwood, and Angela Mahoney. Dominic has also been fortunate enough to receive various scholarships from Monsters of Hip Hop, allowing him to train and learn from the best internationally. Dominic was recently recognized by his peers as a recipient for the Trailblazer Award, which recognizes his ability to take initiative and his contributions to the Canadian dance community.

Most recently, Dominic just completed a year abroad, performing on the biggest cruise ship in the world, Symphony of the Seas. Dominic was a featured Acrobat, in the High flying aqua show “HiRo” produced by Royal Caribbean, and Choreographed by Shay Kuebler.
