“Simon Barnum is a creative visionary. He came to work for the Georgian production of the XFactor and later for Georgia’s Got Talent and single-handedly revolutionised how the major TV live stage performances were choreographed.

He changed the scale; he changed the rules of the game and took the on-stage choreography to a much higher level than what our audiences knew and expected at the time.

On top of that Simon is a pleasure to work with, he always has an exact creative vision of what needs to be done, he works well with a brief and delivers the best possible performance with the team he is provided with.

It was a wonderful learning experience for me to work with this top-notch world class professional Simon Barnum.“

“Simon has been one of our main choreographers for over 12 years and his contribution is invaluable.

He has an unmatched ability to bring out the best in every performer and an instinctive understanding of how to deliver the most impactful audience experience.

He has strong attention to detail; is consistently reliable, yet creative; and he holds the performers that he works with to the same high standards and expectations that he has for himself.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his skills to anyone looking for an experienced creative who has the ability and talent to deliver highquality work.“
