Trained at the prestigious Alvin Ailey School in New York and the Houston Ballet Academy, Roderick George has won several prizes for his choreographies and has danced for several internationally-renowned choreographers, including the great William Forsythe. His contemporary creations mix virtuosic technique, urban spirit, and hip-hop energy with the aesthetic and discipline of contemporary ballet, generating agile and rapid movements.
