Kenrick 'H2O' Sandy MBE
Co-Artistic Director of Olivier Award Winning Boy Blue

Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy MBE, Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director of Boy Blue, Associate Artist at the Barbican London, is undoubtedly one of the most renowned choreographers and performers in the UK commercial and theatrical scenes.

 

Sandy’s credits are extensive having worked in TV, film and theatre, at home and abroad, alongside Boy Blue’s 2001 inception. As a choreographer he’s responsible for REDD(2019), Outliers (2018), the Olivier nominated Blak Whyte Gray (2017), The Five & the Prophecy of Prana (2013), A Night With Boy Blue (2018, 2016, 2015, 2013) and Olivier award winning Pied Piper: A Hip-Hop Dance Revolution (2007). He also co-directed and choreographed Unleashed for the Barbican (2012).

 

Off the main stage, Sandy collaborated with director Danny Boyle for the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, winning the Evening Standard’s Beyond Theatre award. Sandy also worked on the Closing Winter Paralympic 2014 Ceremony and the 2007 Tour De France opening in Trafalgar Square, London. On screen work includes choreography on the BAFTA Awards, for All Stars and T2 Trainspotting, plus appearances on Street Dance 3D, the BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance and CBBC’s Alesha’s Street Dance Stars. In 2015 he judged the inaugural BBC Young Dancer Competition. As a performer himself, his repertoire includes Legacy Re:Loaded at the Jerwood Dance House and Jonzi D’s Lyrikal Fearta Redux at Sadler’s Wells.

 

No stranger to the music industry, Sandy, a former UK Street Dancing Champion, has performed with Victoria Beckham, Fergie (Black Eyed Peas), Leona Lewis and George Michael to name a few.  Accomplished in all styles of street dance – break-dancing, popping and gymnastics – Sandy’s also created choreography for an array of artists including FKA twigs, Rita Ora, Plan B, Dizzee Rascal and Alexandra Burke. Brands have also called for Sandy’s Midas touch; work with Nike, adidas, Castrol and ASOS starring on his CV.

 

Born in east London, perhaps the most surprising element to Sandy’s story is that he didn’t start dancing until he was 19. With long-held dreams to be a basketball player, the course of his life quickly changed when he joined his first dance troupe, Ruff Stuff, led by MTV’s Kat B, where he soon became the trickster, thanks to his acrobatic abilities.

 

Fast forward and in 2017 Sandy was an awarded an MBE for services to dance and the community in the Queen’s New Years honours list, an Honorary Fellowship (HonFGS) from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in 2018 and in 2019, a Companionship from LIPA.

Creativity and performing arts have always been at the forefront of everything Carrie-Anne has done.  On her home island of Guernsey, from as far back as she can remember, Carrie was dancing, entertaining, choreographing and teaching to anyone who would give her the chance to do so.

Lucky enough to get a multi skilled training on her homeland - she was aware from a young age that this was it, this is what she wanted to do as a career, and at 19 she made the move to the arts hub of London to study professionally on a full time Musical Theatre course.

After graduating Carrie furthered her training through various open classes as well as company classes with two of London’s most successful hip hop companies - Dance 2XS and ZooNation.  It was with the latter that Carrie continued to grow through the company from performer to teacher, dance captain, assistant and both associate choreographer and director.

Fast forwarding to more recent years and the exciting ascent of her career, Carrie’s name has become synonymous with the global smash hit musical “SIX” for which Carrie received an Olivier Award nomination for “Best Theatre Choreographer”. Other nominations received include OFFIE and WhatsOnStage - also for best choreography.

Carrie has a big heart for the theatre but engages and enjoys art in all its forms.  She has also worked on various music videos, live and corporate events, artist movement, judging both nationally and internationally, and a big love of hers - teaching.

Having been brought up around a musically talented father, music has always been an important and dedicated aspect of Shomokeh’s life. From a tender young age of 7 she began to learn the piano and shortly after the clarinet, giving her a strong grounding to music. Shomokeh  has always been fascinated by the organisation of sound and how musical pieces are put together.

 

Shomokeh has just completed a Masters degree in Audio Production where she has been practising her engineering, mixing and mastering skills along with DJing, composing and management skills as opposed to piano and clarinet being her first point of study.

 

Her long term ambition is to forever live through her music and spread her love for art through compositions created having been inspired by the components of life, fortunate enough to experience. Shomokeh, a strong minded individual, continues to practise her skills everyday  using music not only as an outlet, escapism or as therapy, but as a way of living, being that it is her passion as well as a chosen career path.
