Like many male dancers, I started in ballet because my sisters danced. It didn’t take long, however, for me to realize what a great combination of athletics and art ballet was. When I was about 10 years old, my sister found CBC and so began my training. Stuart Carroll and Sharon Newton were a perfect combination together. It is because of their instruction, nurturing, and occasional pushes, that I was able to become a profession dancer. I am now a Corps De Ballet member with the Texas Ballet Theater under the directorship of Ben Stevenson. I have Mr. Carroll and Mrs. Newton to thank for the many opportunities I have had thus far in my career. They built a foundation for me in classical ballet, and I would not be where I am with out them. They are truly one of a kind.
