He has set choreography on Boston Ballet, Boston Ballet II, and Festival Ballet Providence, along with other established companies and for international galas. In 2015, he won the Choreography Award in the prestigious Erik Bruhn Ballet Competition. He is on the faculty at Harvard University and Centro Corepgraphico, in Las Palmas, Spain. The performance will feature Colby students on stage alongside the professional dancers of the Portland Ballet in a new work that was developed in Portland during Colby’s 2018 ‘Jan Plan’ term.
