Legendary choreographer who first rose to fame when she created Hot Gossip, the pretty-risque-for-their-time dance troupe who were everywhere in the early 80s and spawned Sarah Brightman. Has also worked on more movies and stage musicals than you could shake a stick at. Go on, try it, I dare you.


You know that OTT dance routine to "Every Sperm Is Sacred" in Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life? That was her, so it was.

She used to baby-sit for Gladiator director Ridley Scott, a commercials director at the time. He subsequently asked her to choreograph an advert for ice cream.

She was made a dame in the 2021 Queen's birthday honours.
