Bio

Paul has directed and choreographed for theater, TV/film, and circus around the world. His passion for coupling the human experience with graceful athleticism is apparent in his work.

Recently, he worked with his mentor, Jeff Calhoun, on their “all tap-dancing” hit production of the Music Man. His most critically acclaimed work is both the Off-Broadway and LA productions of The Legend of Georgia McBride, winning him an Astaire Award and an LA Ovation Award for his Choreography, as well as a Lucille Lortel Award Nomination. his other off-Broadway work includes the New Group’s Steve, directed by Cynthia Nixon, and Redbull’s School for Scandal.

On Broadway, he imparted the physicality of Hedwig and the Angry Inch to Tony Award winner John Cameron Mitchell, Darren Criss, Michael C. Hall, Taye Diggs, Lena Hall, and Euan Morton. Paul also trained Laverne Cox for her starring role in Rocky Horror Picture Show on FOX as well as Neil Patrick Harris for his Michael Jackson tribute on Lip Sync Battle.

Paul’s passion for dance on film can be seen on the Disney Channel, in the new movie Diamond Soles, and in commercials for companies like Bunny Shapiro Jewelry and ALT coffee. His desire to continue to make dance films is evident, whether it be on a big budget sound stage or with his iPhone Gimble.

In circus, Paul choreographed the European and Australian premiers of Filament with Shortround Productions. He has also contributed work to the circus company Grounded Aerial.

His charity work has helped the Ali Forney Center, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the I’ll Be There Project, Artspire DC, and Covenant House.

Paul continues to develop his own projects in his free time.
