Will Centurion

Ensemble

Will Centurion began Latin American dance training at an early age. At 19 he completed the Certificate IV in Performing Arts at Brent Street Studios and then went on to study for a Diploma in Dance at Danceworld 301 in Melbourne. He also trained as an actor at NIDA by gaining a Village Roadshow Scholarship to participate in the Young Actors Studio.

In 2000 William headed to Paris to join the multicultural dance company Dance Of The World as a featured Argentine tango dancer for an extensive European tour. He remained in Europe for eight years adding to his name a list of music theatre credits which included Saturday Night Fever (Double J), We Will Rock You (Dance Captain), Aida (Assistant Dance Captain), Miami Nights (Emilio) and the concert gala A Tribute to Andrew Lloyd Webber with Elaine Paige. William’s choreographic achievements whilst based in Germany involved launches for various brands such as Joop, Givenchy, BMW, Chrysler, Opel, The Cannes Film Festival, Top of the Pops, the Coca Cola Ibiza Club Tour and the Skoda World Dealer Conferences in Mallorca and Portugal.

Upon returning to Australia in 2008 William quickly established himself as an Argentine tango choreographer setting up his own tango company Three2Tango before making it onto our TV screens as a Top 20 dancer on So You Think You Can Dance in 2010. He then steadily began to obtain Australian music theatre credits which include the National tour of West Side Story where he understudied and performed the role of Bernardo, the national tour of A Chorus Line in which he played the role of Al Deluca and as part of the World Premiere production of King Kong in Melbourne in which he played the role of Taji. He continues his work as a tango choreographer/dancer by contributing behind the scenes on the last three seasons of Dancing With The Stars as well as performing with his company around Sydney and Melbourne for events including Hats Off, Short & Sweet and the Sydney Fringe Festival at which he premiered his first full length Tango Production, Madame Tango.

Will is excited to once again perform Jerome Robbins choreography on stage and is thrilled to finally obtain a Dance Captain position in Australia.
