Originally from New Hampshire, Isaiah Silvia-Chandley graduated high school in 2012 and attended The Young Americans College of Performing Arts, an organization committed to global performance outreach, touring Europe, Japan and the United States performing and teaching song and dance. In addition, Isaiah trained extensively at The School at Jacob's Pillow and Broadway Dance Center, with an emphasis in Musical Theatre Dance. In 2018, Isaiah graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a BFA in Musical Theatre Performance. Since graduation Isaiah has worked as both a choreographer and performer at Chicagoland theaters such as the Goodman Theatre, Drury Lane Theatre, Paramount Theatre, Porchlight Music Theatre and Metropolis Performing Arts Center. Like the musical theatre cannon, Isaiah's choreography ranges in style and genre, exploring a marriage between old and new vocabulary. Isaiah seeks to push back against preconceived notions of who dance belongs to, and instead create work for all people to inhabit the movement space.
