Alchemy Dance Company was founded in 2005 by Marchant Birch. He brought together dancers from a diverse range of cultural, musical and dance backgrounds. The fusion of this range of experience with Marchant’s renowned smooth style brought about an exciting and fresh concept in salsa training and choreography. Influenced predominantly by New York Mambo, ballroom, African and Jazz dance, the focus of Alchemy is strong technical training, the PROCESS of creating dance, and ultimately transforming individually and collectively as dancers.
Now representing Alchemy Dance Company as a solo couple, husband & wife team Marchant & Davina are known for their captivating performances, world-class choreographies, and excellent teaching methods, they are in high demand to perform and teach around the UK and internationally.
Over the years many salsa instructors have trained with Marchant & Davina at some point in their dance development. Such is the standard of their teaching and depth of knowledge, many salsa instructors, teachers of other forms of dance and trained dancers are regularly found at their academy, training bootcamps and in the Alchemy Performance Team.
