Originally from Brisbane, Aaron Cash is a talented performer and one of the original “Tap Dogs”. Early in his career, world renowned choreographer Kenny Ortega (Dirty Dancing and High School Musical 1 & 2) cast Aaron in Cher’s Love Hurts Tour. This opportunity culminated in an impressive 10-year touring contract as Cher’s lead dancer. His amazing talent drew the attention of many high-profi le artists in the industry.
In the early 1990s, Twyla Tharp hand-picked Aaron to become her personal Pas de Deux partner and the legendary Mikhail Baryshnikov included Aaron in their world tour. His innovative and creative skills as a performer, choreographer and artistic consultant are now highly sought after the world over. He has consulted in a variety of mediums, from his work with Wet Design (the company responsible for the Belagio fountain in Las Vegas) on their fountain at Steven Wynn’s latest luxury hotel in Macao, China to serving as the personal Tango coach for Jolie Richardson on Nip/Tuck.
Aaron is the face of Johnny Walker’s worldwide advertising campaign “Human – Keep Walking“ and recently completed the role of the Matador in the Los Angeles Opera production of La Traviata starring world-renowned soprano Rene Fleming. He has been featured in films such as Titanic and Hook, the recently released The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Bolden. His television credits include Scrubs and Nip/Tuck and the series debut of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, just to name but a few.
In 2014, Aaron adds another success to his on-screen career: he is one of the judges of the popular TV-show So You Think You Can Dance Australia. Together with Paula Abdul, Jason Gilkison and Shannon Holtzapffel he sets out to find Australia’s most talented dancer. He travels the world extensively, hosting, coaching and teaching choreographic and dance seminars.
