Beau was born in Dubbo and grew up on the South Coast of New South Wales in Culburra Beach on Yuin country. He is an Aboriginal man from the Wiradjuri Nation of Central NSW. After graduating in 2009 with a Certificate IV in Theatre from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), Beau enrolled to study dance at the National Aboriginal Islander Skills Development Association Dance College (NAISDA).

There Beau studied the Lester Horton Technique under Graeme Watson and spent time with community on Saibai Island in the Torres Strait and on Elcho Island, North East Arnhem Land exploring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and dance.

During his time at NAISDA, Beau choreographed three works for their NAISDA showcases, as well as for the 2010 Deadly Awards. He has worked with choreographers Gail Mabo, Vicki Van Hout and Tammy Gissell and danced for youMove Company and Blakdance Australia.

Beau joined Bangarra in 2013, performing Spirit in Vietnam, touring nationally with Blak and regionally with Kinship. He also performed in Bangarra’s season of Dance Clan 3 as part of the inaugural Corroboree Sydney. Beau was part of the company during Bangarra’s 25th anniversary in 2014, performing in Holland and nationally with Patyegarang.

In 2016, Beau will create his first work for the company entitled Miyagan, alongside fellow dancer Daniel Riley, which will be part of the OUR land people stories national tour.
