Stephen Galloway is talking about the art of dance. ‘When I go out with friends to clubs, they’re always trying to get me on the dancefloor because they think it’s going to be some sort of extended performance,’ he explains over the phone from Los Angeles. ‘As dancers – even when we’re at parties we’re still performing. But I have always enjoyed watching non-professionals more because you really get a sense of how they are physically enjoying themselves. I find people to be at their most honest when they’re physical.’
Galloway is a multidisciplinary movement expert with an incredible work ethic. He spent 25 years as principal dancer at the progressive Ballet Frankfurt, where he was mentored by one of the most important people in his life, the genre-defying choreographer and company director William Forsythe. Galloway is also the highly successful creative movement director who has worked with some of the world’s most prolific visionaries: he was art director at Issey Miyake in the 1990s and has spent two decades crafting Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones’ on-stage moves. And he’s behind some of fashion’s most recognisable and lively images, directing top models in campaigns for labels such as Saint Laurent and Gucci.
