Introducing Tegan Gourlay, our choreographer extraordinaire. Tegan leads our dances in her role as Jess, the Landlady of the West Port Tavern.
Tegan has a BA [Hons] in Acting Stage and Screen from Napier University and has been acting for 20 years. When 9 and 10, she represented Scotland in events in Disneyland Florida and in Slovakia. Her stocked cupboard of costumes for every occasion is testimony to the fact that she is passionate about all things performing
The mover and motivator for the dance sequences devised in collaboration with her fellow dancers, Tegan really gets into the groove with the fast tempo of ‘I will be your friend’ and ‘Irrelevant’.
Character wise, she likes the contrast between the pompous society anatomist Dr Robert Knox and the downtrodden, earthy characters of Burke and Hare, each unscrupulous in his own way.
