(Hip Hop, Contemporary, Tap & Musical Theatre)
With over ten years experience in the live event industry, Jordan brings a unique skill set that combines stage and production management with the artistry and talent of a professional dancer and choreographer.
At the age of three Jordan began his dance training in ballet and tap in Abbotsford BC, Canada. As his passion for the art grew so did his class schedule. He quickly added Jazz and Musical Theatre to his repertoire and later introduced Hip Hop, Modern, Contemporary, African and Latin Ballroom to his list of studied genres. In his early teens Jordan trained with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and became a company member in Vancouver Tap Dance Society’s ‘Tap Co.’. As a competitive dancer in BC he performed at the provincial level in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior levels, representing his home town of Chilliwack.
Jordan launched his professional performance career with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines as a featured dancer in their on board productions. After five years at sea, he traded in his sea legs for local work back at home. He began working closely with Vancouver-based production company PRP: Patrick Roberge Productions. He subsequently appeared in hundreds of productions across North America and Asia, the most notable for PRP include; the Guangdong International Tourism Festival in China performing with country music trio The Higgins and the Vancouver 2010 Official Mascot Launch where he brought to life ‘Quatchi’ the Sasquatch in the televised unveiling.
As his experience with PRP gained momentum, Jordan’s roles grew to include Performance Director and Assistant Choreographer for several high-level televised events including the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Winter Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies, the 99th Grey Cup Halftime Show, Rick Hansen Celebration 25, the 122nd IOC Session, and the 102nd Grey Cup Halftime Show.
He has had the pleasure to work with such artists as Nickelback, Mariana’s Trench, Sarah McLaughlin, Imagine Dragons, and Victoria Duffield.
Over the last decade Jordan has established himself as a prominent teacher in the Fraser Valley and an award-winning choreographer, most noted for his unique and innovative style. He can be found teaching at several dance studios in the Lower Mainland and various workshops throughout BC and Alberta.
He has worked as Choreographer/Director on such productions as CATS, Oliver, Grease, Cabaret, A Chorus Line, All Shook Up, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, In The Heights, Fiddler on the Roof, and more.
He continues to work creatively with PRP on local projects and productions, such as story development and character development for shows seen at Vancouver’s annual Fair at the PNE (Pacific National Exhibition). He enjoys creating and performing whenever the opportunity presents itself and thrives off sharing his passion for dance with the next generation of dancers.
