‘Charlie graduated Valedictorian from Walnut Hill School for the Performing Arts where he earned the Arnold C. Taylor Award for Artistic and Academic Excellence. He spent four years dancing soloist and principal roles with the Sacramento Ballet, performing works by Ron Cunningham, Balanchine and deMille. Charlie has spent the last ten years working for and alongside Twyla Tharp. Dancing in her touring company, he was nominated the Best Male Dancer of 2003 by the European Critic’s Choice Awards. In 2006, he made his Broadway Debut in the Tharp/Joel musical Movin’ Out. He assisted in the creation of, and performed in, Tharp’s subsequent Broadway musical The Times They Are A-Changin’. And in 2010, he won the Fred Astaire Award for Best Male Dancer on Broadway for the creation of his role, Marty, in the Sinatra musical Come Fly Away. He has had the thrill of staging works of both Tharp and Millepied on companies in France and Austrlia as well as in New York, Seattle, Michigan and California. And, he has guested with Lar Lubovitch, Los Angeles Dance Company, Westside Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet. ‘ – LA Dance Project
