Bio


















Justin was born and raised in NY. He began dancing at the age of 15, soon realizing he had found a safe place to learn and grow. Over the past nine years he's been teaching and choreographing around the United States as well as internationally. After training technically for six years, Justin was exposed to a variety of street, freestyle and native movement, sparking inspiration. He began training with world renowned movers and choreographers Dana Foglia, La Jon Danztler, Joanna Numata, Brian Friedman, Sheryl Murakami and many more. Soon after, he began training and performing with Dana Foglia Dance. At this point, exploring new movement and a deeper sense of self became necessary. He then fulfilled his passion of teaching at Broadway Dance Center, NYC as well as choreographing commercially for various recording artists traveling the U.S. Justin began his professional career understudying Tyce Diorio in the final regional production of A Chorus Line before it returned to Broadway as the role of Mike.

Within the past few years, Justin has traveled internationally to Japan to work with Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka Schools of Music and Dance as well as a recent Europe teaching tour, sharing at famous studios in Berlin, Vienna, Gothenburg and Zürich. He has most recently been seen dancing on the hit Fox TV series Glee (Season four and five) as well as a guest choreographer at The Pulse On Tour Summer 2014 Showcase and 2015 NYC Gala. He also was included as Guest Faculty at the Pulse NYC Summer event this past year. Justin has worked with many recording artists such as Paula Abdul, Miley Cyrus and Jordan Sparks. His newest endeavors include creative direction, choreography, video production and video editing for his creative collective, Pendulum People. Justin’s versatile creative background, paired with his new age perspective, knowledge of street styles and unique musical flow set him far apart from any artist in our age. He is currently working in both Los Angeles and New York City choreographing, creative directing, dancing, as well as teaching at Debbie Reynolds, Movement Lifestyle, Millennium Dance Complex, Broadway Dance Center, and Peridance, NYC. Justin is also traveling the world sharing his knowledge and passion for movement with organizations specializing in Dance Education. Urban Reach, BellaMoxi Dance Convention and Stage Door Connection to name a few. He is determined to inspire change and positive growth in the world through honest art.

Urban Flow



The connection from SOURCE, to SOUL, to BODY : through MUSIC.

In our time together we will balance physical training, rhythm training, body awareness and exploration of self. Movement derived from the soul of native roots, the flow of street styles, and the dynamic of contemporary dance: all inspired by a New Age perspective. Similar to a Yogic flow, we strive for constant motion in breath and intention. This safe space of encouragement, empowerment and truth allows the mover to activate their highest self. A passion for music, rhythm and storytelling drive this class.

“This class offers the opportunity for versatile movers to expand their knowledge and experience in Urban Contemporary and Street Styles. So often I encounter the challenge contemporary dancers face:: CONNECTION TO MUSIC and GROOVE. I believe these qualities are essential for every dancer. These qualities allow us to interpret movement with ease, increase our pick up capabilities and evolve our individual voice as moving artists: our freestyle. Theses qualities also open the door to include our audience in what we are doing on stage, film, etc. When we groove, we invite our audience to move with us... we do not shut that door to human connectivity. SOUL is the essence of movement and SOUL cannot be taught... but passion, positive energy and a safe space to explore can ignite the learning process. This class provides these aspects and promotes artistic growth.”
