DANIEL BLUE: MEET JOEL MYERS >>>
Joel Myers was trained in classical dance and modern dance entirely on scholarship in a studio in Auburn. Kinetically gifted from an early age, Joel was first attracted to martial arts as a means of disciplining his body to function at higher levels of majesty and grace. Now somewhat of a pacifist, his training hardened abdomen was brought into its manhood by the lifting of ballerinas as apposed to the absorption of karate kicks.
Currently Joel is living in Hilltop Tacoma and dancing in Seattle for Spectrum Dance Theater, but having recently hosted and authored his third feature length show, his career as a choreographer is beginning to show definite promise. Joel has found out how to take what he loves and shape it in a way that not only promotes his own talent, but also cultivates the talents of young dancers who, as he introduced them after the show, are taking jobs in the dance industry all over America.
Outside of dancing for professional companies and creating his own choreography, Joel teaches all types of dance; one on one, and classes of all ages, skills, and sizes. You can find him biking his way up and down the hills of our city to and from the bus stop that allows him passage to the north metropolis of Seattle.
