Algonquin Arts Theatre welcomes Starbound founder and director Sandra Coyte who has recruited top dancers and choreographers from prime time television and the world-wide stage for this year's week-long Shore Dance intensive. Instructors' credits include shows like "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Glee" and the program will focus on getting participants "Ready for Prime Time" with training in floor barre, lyrical, Broadway jazz, hip hop and contemporary dance. Through the week, dancers and instructors will work together to choreograph a final public performance in which they will appear side by side on the stage.

Meet the Talent:

Eddie Bennett

Eddie Bennett

Eddie Bennett has established himself as a professional entertainer with over 16 years of working continuously in the theatre industry. His first professional credit landed him in the lap of well known, L.A.-based choreographers, Helene Phillips and Barry Lather. He moved on to national tours and regional theatre credits soon after. His portrayal of Paul in the Jefferson Performing Arts Society production of A Chorus Line left "few dry eyes in the audience" and earned him critics praise quoting him as "a new talent we will see more of in the future." During that time Eddie continued to exceed by joining the Broadway show CHICAGO: The Musical. He has toured and still continues to work with the Broadway company. This past year, marked Eddie's 14th year with CHICAGO. He has played every male ensemble role in the Broadway stage production still running at the Ambassador Theatre in NYC.

In 2008 Eddie debuted as a choreographer. Credits include: Deborah Gibson's, Pop Goes Broadway, starring 80's pop sensation Debbie Gibson, at Harrah's in Atlantic City and The Flunky. Eddie received rave reviews for his choreography for "Pop Goes Broadway" by The Courier Post and The Daily News calling his work "superb" and "wonderfully animated". The show was hailed as "the very best" in production shows featured in all of Atlantic City in 2008. Choreographer for The Flunky: A New Musical Eddie worked with top L.A. director Kay Cole on this hilarious new musical. A show that can only be described as "Entourage" meets "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". This marked Eddie's first show that is in pre-production for Broadway!

Other credits include: "Mira Quien Baila" star Bianca Marroquin's sold out show "Luz". He choreographed his first major film "FISH: A Boy in a Man's Prison" based on the acclaimed novel by the same name. He choreographed his first major concert "Debbie Gibson and Tiffany: Journey through the 80's" which kicked off the tour on "GMA: Summer Concert Series". He choreographed his first music video "Electric Youth: Reloaded" which debut on the season finale of the popular "The Jace Hall Show". He was also featured on Season 5 of "Celebrity Apprentice" and has been a guest judge on the widely popular "Dance Moms" series.

Recently, Eddie returned home from Chile after choreographing and dancing for Debbie Gibson's featured concert in "Bizzaro's: Hit Parade". This performance sold out Santiago's famed Movistar Arena, a 12,000 seat venue.

Eddie has had the chance to work and dance with a slew of celebrities including: Patrick Swayze, Patti La Belle, Angela Lansbury, Usher, Debbie Gibson, Wayne Brady, Lisa Rinna, Bebe Neuwirth, Michelle Williams (Destiny's Child), Wendy Williams, Billy Ray Cyrus, Chita Rivera, Jerry Springer, George Hamilton, Robin Givens, Harry Hamlin, Kevin Richardson, Ashlee Simpson, John O'Hurley, Gregory Harrison, Tom Wopat, Marvin Hamlisch, Lillias White, Carol Woods (who is also his son's Godmother), and Roz Ryan.

Eddie's biggest pride and joy is his family. He became a father in 2007, welcoming his now 7-year-old son Raz into his life. He continues to work hard and focus on the important things.
