Name: CoopDog
Gavin has been dancing since 1999 when he discovered how far he could slide on his knees across the Hippodrome dance floor.

He fully committed himself to break dance at drama school on his Drama Degree where he found the space and freedom to push the boundaries of his naturally gifted rhythm. It was here that he began to develop his own personal break style and focus on the techniques that allow the body to move in such an explosive way.

Through dancing on the HipHop Scene he made links with like-minded talent. This opened the doors to training with the notorious break dance practitioner Kevin Gopie, (Dj Renegade).

Kevin shaped Gavin and his fellow unruly dance pals into a structured crew and they quite quickly became a hugely influential crew on the international BBOY scene. The Soul Mavericks Crew.

Over the years the crew has gone from strength to strength and each crew member's character and passion for dance creates one of the most dynamic training atmospheres of all the various dance genres.

Gavin has toured with the Olympic Torch Relay in 2012 and played a vital role at Breaking Convention in 2013. He has run dance themed events with high profile clients such as Google, Nokia, Corona and Nike. He dances at large scale events both in the UK and Internationally. Gavin and the crew have made a huge impact at night club launches for various high profile central London venues such as Ministry of Sound, Kensington Roof Gardens, Drury Club and Heaven. He inspires kids to dance in schools and church halls throughout the country and has been lucky enough to showcase this rare and engaging dance style in various TV commercials and magazine shoots.
