MY TEACHER PAGE
Mr. Blanchard is originally from a small city in Ohio called Springfield. He moved to Columbus and discovered dance as a middle schooler and didn’t start studying pre-professionally until his high school dance teachers encouraged him to do so. He then won a scholarship to BalletMet Dance Academy and continued his training at The Ohio State University, receiving a BFA in Dance and a minor in Exercise Science. As a first generation college student, Mr. Blanchard never even thought college was a possibility, but then he moved to NYC after graduating and danced with companies and projects that took him around the world. One of his first jobs in NYC was teaching dance in the Bronx, and it’s great that he’s found a home at Bronxdale starting the 6th year of the dance program!
