Joined Wonderbound 2015
Conner, originally from Fort Collins, Colorado, received his initial training from Canyon Concert Ballet. He was introduced to dance through a synthesis of musical theater and martial arts training. He continued dancing at Butler University, where he graduated cum laude with a BFA in Dance Performance with departmental honors. Conner has had the privilege of performing in Paul Taylor’s Le Sacre Du Printemps (The Rehearsal), Cinderella, and Gorgio Arpino’s Viva Vivaldi. He has also recently performed as the “hoofer’ in George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue and the Bluebird in Sleeping Beauty. Since returning home to Colorado, Conner has performed with Kim Robard’s Dance and David Taylor’s Zikr Dance Ensemble. He is incredibly thrilled to be joining Wonderbound.
