Carl Heslop reluctantly walked into the Denmark taster workshops for The Beauty Index in 2016. Carl was swept up in the excitement of seeing his wife perform in The Creation of Now and had to overcome some significant fear to join his first ever dance project. He walked into The Beauty Index a footballer and a father wanting to role model to his boys that they can do anything. He left a dancer, performer, and advocate for community arts projects. Since then, he has danced with SHOON arts, volunteered on Chorus, performed with the pvi collective, completed his PhD in public health and worked with Annette as a tour manager and soloist on the recent successful regional tour of The Beauty Index in 2021.
