Participates in 6 items

Paul Harris is a leading choreographer, dance teacher, and movement director whose most high-profile choreography to date are the laser scenes for Catherine Zeta-Jones in the Hollywood blockbuster Entrapment and the wand combat sequences in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, for which he devised the physical language for wand use for the remainder of the Harry Potter film franchise. He has choreographed for Oscar-, BAFTA-, and Emmy-award winning actors including: Sean Connery, Natalie Portman, Gary Oldman, Scarlett Johansson, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, and Carey Mulligan. Other film credits include: Crooked House with Glenn Close, Far From the Madding Crowd with Carey Mulligan, The Other Boleyn Girl, Inkheart, The Tichborne Claimant, Mister Lonely, and the Disney musical Cheetah Girls 2 directed by Kenny Ortega.

Paul's work is a natural combination of his two backgrounds. He studied acting at drama school himself and on graduating worked extensively in theatre and television including national tours of three West End productions. Prior to this, Paul was the UK, West European, and International Champion in both ballroom and Latin American dancing as well as studying classical ballet, jazz, and tap.
