Highlights of his career include the Touchstone Pictures hit Step Up, HBO's Boardwalk Empire, ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition featuring a musical number starring Kristen Chenoweth, NBC's America's Got Talent Season Finale, as well as other work in the commercial field.
John started his dance training at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. He was accepted into the Dance Theatre of Harlem's residency there where he began to put structure to his passion for movement. Soon after, he attended Virginia Commonwealth University where he earned a BFA in Dance/Choreography. Since graduating, he has taught for dance competitions and traveled to many studios across the US to teach his unique blend of classical technique and Street Styles.
One of John's favorite annual events is Broadway Bares, a benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. He has been involved since 2008 as a dancer, and has since co-choreographed with Derek Mitchell, assisted the director, and is excited to be presenting his first number this coming June.
