MEET OUR NEW STAFF MEMBER - JOSHUA JUNG

TAP - JAZZ - BALLET

Joshua began as a hip hop dancer when he was 10, competing in dance conventions for 3 years, during which he rounded off his dance training with jazz, ballet, contemporary, and tap. Discovering his passion for ballet, he attended Bay Pointe Ballet under the tutorship of Bruce Steivel, where, in addition to ballet, was versed in character dance and partnering. When he started his first year studying Dance and Environmental Science at San Francisco State University, Joshua also started his professional dance career at the age of 17, dancing with Foley Dance, performing neoclassical-Georgian ballets around the Bay Area. Joshua also danced with the New Ballet Studio Company in Cinderella, The San Jose Nutcracker, and Fast Forward (a contemporary ballet showcase). Additionally, Joshua has also taught dance of many different styles to many different ages; his teaching ranges from Tap to Ballet, and from toddlers to grandparents. He can’t wait to share his experiences with his students!
