DENISE HOLLAND BETHKE
Choreographer Producer Director
Once a dancer, always a dancer.
Whether I’m choreographing, directing, teaching or producing, it’s hard for me not to incorporate movement, musicality, timing, and aesthetics.
I’m originally from Los Angeles, now living in Sweden and working internationally.
My resume runs for over 40 years in the industry, and my network is far reaching.
My ambition is to create entertainment in any kind of setting.
Having had a professional dance career in Los Angeles in the 90’s gave me opportunities to work with stars like Paula Abdul, Michale Kidd, Juliette Prouse, KC and the Sunshine Band, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Bolton, Reba McEntire, Back Street Boys, Rob Marshall, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chemical Brothers, Rosie O’Donnell, and Kevin Spacey.
I fulfilled dreams of dancing at the Oscars’, on the MTV Awards, Friends, Drew Carey Show, and movies like Parent Trap, George of the Jungle, The Flintstones, and Beyond The Sea, as well as some music videos of the time.
My move to Sweden in 2001 eventually brought 2 dancing babies, and an extended career dancing in musicals until 2016.
The thrills kicked in when I was also asked to choreograph big musicals like The Producers, Bullets Over Broadway, Adams Family, Buddy Holly, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and more.
This then led to being employed by the international company, Stage Entertainment who gave me the honor of associate choreographer for the Broadway musical Anastasia, where I got to set up the show in different European countries. This year I will choreograph Pretty Woman in Italy.
Since 2006, I have enjoyed creating and producing various entertainment for over 100 different events, parties, clubs, commercials, and conventions.
