Joe’s passion for dance started with musical theater through multiple programs including Spotlight Youth Theater, Bravo, and Encore where he performed in many musicals. Joe began focusing on dance when he started training at Ruth Page Center for the Arts in 2020. Joe is a junior dance student and a member of the Dance Repertory Company at the Chicago Academy for the Arts, where he trains under the direction of Randy Duncan, Patrick Simoniello, Graca Sales, Ethan Kirschbaum, and Robyn Mineko Williams. Joe spent last summer training in Seattle at Pacific Northwest Ballet. He is inspired by Nick Pupillo’s choreography and excited to continue to grow as a dancer. This will be his first year with the Visceral Studio Company.
