HARRISON EDWARD MARTIN
Originally from Boston Massachusetts, Harrison began his dance training at Boston Ballet in their City Dance program when he was 8 years old. He would soon move into the school program and train until 2015 when he would join Boston Ballet’s pre-professional program along with enrolling at Boston Arts Academy as a Dance major. After three years studying with both programs in 2018 Harrison was offered a full scholarship with the School of American Ballet in New York City for their annual summer program which would lead him to join the school for their Winter Term.
Throughout his time in school Harrison discovered a huge passion for choreographing and has since then created many different pieces in the various programs, starting his choreographic debut with Boston Ballet’s first Choreographic workshop with a piece titled “Sardonic Rivals.” Since then he would create work for SAB’s Fall Student Choreographic Workshop 2018 and 2019 with “Firefish,” and “The B-Sides: V. Warehouse Medicine,” along with many personal projects planned to be released in the future.
Following his studies with SAB, Harrison joined as a Studio Company member with Sarasota Ballet in 2020, and would perform and choreograph pieces for their Terrace Programs during the 20/21 season. Performing in works like Dwight Rhoden’s “Choke,” and Bournonville’s “Napoli Variations,” and Ricardo Graziano’s “Fiero de Castro.” For the Second Terrance program, he would get the opportunity to choreograph “Primacy of a Number,” which revived raving reviews from viewers of the program.
Harrison has since then transitioned back to New York City to work on developing his choreography to new levels, along with plans to explore new sides of the entertainment industry. Between creating and working, Harrison is ecstatic to be back on stage performing with Chevalier Ballet and cannot wait to for everyone to see what’s to come!
