Biography

Nathan is from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, where he received his early dance training. He started professional training at Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School and had the chance to tour with the school throughout Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Ontario. He received a RBC Youth Excellence Scholarship in 2006 as a member of Festival Dance at the Banff Centre, and performed with Northern Plains Ballet before joining Festival Ballet Providence for three seasons under Mihailo Djuric. Nathan spent several summers with Ballet Montana and, before coming to Ballet Idaho, danced with Ballet San Antonio. In 2012, Nathan had his Ballet Idaho choreographic debut with a new ballet Timepiece, which reviewer Dana Oland from Idaho Statesman called “a fun character ballet with a
sci-fi twist.” He has also choreographed works on Anchorage Ballet, Ballet Montana, and the Boise Dance Co-op. This is Nathan’s seventh season with Ballet Idaho.
