Biography

Andrew Davison, a North East native, discovered his interest in dance at the age of eleven when he began training at his local dance school in Northumberland. As his passion for the arts grew, Andrew then went on to attend SA Performing Arts Centre in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, which fuelled his desire to pursue a career as an actor, dancer, and singer.

Whilst in college, Andrew was successfully chosen to be part of Sir Mathew Bourne's touring production of Lord of the Flies, which inspired him to explore more of the contemporary dance genre. As a result, he went on to become a member of Hit the Ground Running Dance Theatre Company, performing work such as Macho at Dance City, Newcastle.

After touring the UK and Norway in An Evening of Dirty Dancing, Andrew moved to Osaka where he performed at Universal Studios Japan in their Rock & Roll Production Universal Monsters Live. From there he joined the production cast of Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Jade, where he travelled the Mediterranean for six months performing in a multitude of shows; one being Palace of Lights, a production by Tony Award winning director and choreographer Warren Carlyle.

Andrew went on to sign a second contract with Norwegian Creative Studios and was part of the original cast that brought 4 brand new shows onto the most luxurious cruise ship in the world, the Regent Seven Seas Splendor. One of  these productions includes Diamond Run; a heart pounding spy thriller in which Andrew portrayed the leading role of Agent X. Diamond Run was directed by Chad Larabee and choreographed by Chase Benz.

When Andrew is not performing he channels his energy into philanthropy and mental health advocacy as an ambassador for Choices4Growth; a mental health organisation based in Northumberland that provides essential support and counselling to its local community and surrounding areas.
