Barton Cowperthwaite stars in Tiny Pretty things
The Tiny Pretty Things star is a dancer and actor who has secured a number of screen roles so far in his career.
In an interview with Who What Wear, he revealed that he started dancing when his brother had a crush on a girl in a hip-hop class. Not wanting to go to the class alone, Barton agreed to go with him.
There, his passions for the art form flourished and he went on to learn about a range of dance styles.
According to NYC Dance Project, the Artistic Director of the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company – Lar Lubovitch – has said of Barton’s talent in dance:
“In all the dancers with whom I work, I look for an intuitive, poetic spark. It’s something with which certain dancers automatically imbue their movement. Of course, my work requires extreme technical ability as well. But dance is, as I see it, a form of poetry for which physical prowess is merely a means but surely not an end. Dancers who get stuck emphasizing only the athletic aspect of dance seem to have only one note they strike repeatedly. They appear to be shouting all of the time. It’s the difference between yelling and singing. Barton sings…”
