Justin Keats is charmed to be part of BDL this Cycle. A competitive dancer for ten years, Keats then made the leap (probably a switch second) to college and after earning a BFA in performance dance from the University of California, Irvine, he made the jump (Saut de chat for sure this time) from working as a parade performer for the Disney corporation to dancing on cruise ships. After a year at sea, he taught as a guest artist in residence for a semester at Colorado Mesa University. Since moving to New York, Keats has been fortunate to work regionally (Pioneer Theater/ Alabama Shakespeare Festival/ La Jolla Playhouse) as well as performing in New York with Radio City’s Christmas Spectacular (fittingly as the Sugar Plum Fairy Bear) and on Broadway in Escape to Margaritaville and Cirque Du Soleil’s Paramour. He is a passionate, full out dancer who enjoys cultivating an entertaining life in NYC. Love to parents, Jacque and Donna, and thanks to agent, Dave. Follow his adventures @Jkeatster on Instagram.
