Fleur was selected as one of three choreographers recognised as being active in choreographing for the musical theatre genre. Under the mentorship of Broadway choreographer Jonathan Butterel (Company, Into The Woods)and David James who has worked in the professional theatre in New York, Los Angeles and London for the whole of his adult life, as a writer, a designer, and, occasionally, a performer. Fleur and her assigned assistant Austin Staton choreographed a group of 12 students from the MTA in the number ‘Side by Side’ from the musical Company. Two other choreographers had also been set the same task and all 3 came together over a course of 5 weeks to choreograph and analyse the processes involved. This was invaluable and has been a real influence.
