A Life In A Week

Jonny The Fox was the only boy dancer in a class full of girls. His dream was to be a football coach by day and a professional dancer by night. He was in effect a real life Billy Elliot! This life journey takes in Liverpool, London, Bexhill-On-Sea, West End Musicals, Stand-up Comedy, TV auditions and Football. This probably leaves you asking, 'Who Is Jonny The Fox?' Answer? He is you and me! A person chasing perennial hopes and dreams in times of adversity: then and now.

Success for 95% of the planet is fleeting. Like tissues of dust in shards of sun light; fleeting then gone.
