He has also worked as an assistant-choreographer and choreographer on dozens of national commercials including Target ads.
BDC Elite Company Dancers also competed and brought home a Platinum (highest score recognized) and a second place overall for “Detention Dolls,” which was performed as a production with all 29 BDC Elite Company Dancers.
