Meet The SHINE2018 Team - Nathan Fadear

Please share a little bit about who you are and what you do. 

I am a dancer and choreographer who has been living in Vancouver and working in the industry for 10+ years. I've travelled around the world doing what I love and sharing my passions with some of the industries finest!

How did you meet Dean Thullner?

Dean and I connected over RED in 2017 and we hit it off right away. I am so happy that Dean has let me join the team as the movement director of SHINE 2018

You are part of the SHINE2018 team. What is your position on the Shine team and what does your work entail?

As the movement director for SHINE2018, I'm so excited to be working with the models, dancers and different artists. Helping with stage presence and confidence as well as creating some major dance pieces for the audiences enjoyment.

What is your "why"? Why were you drawn to offer your talents in support of this specific charity fundraiser?

This movement is so dear to my heart, mental illness affects so many of us in so many different ways. To come together to celebrate all of our triumphs through this beautiful cause with so many different art forms is such a special event.

What are you most looking forward to at SHINE2018 in terms of the amazing show being created?

I'm so looking forward to creating the opening piece with a vast amount of different talent! Be ready for a powerful opening!
