Josh had his first taste of performing arts when he joined the Children’s Musical Theatre Company at nine years of age. During his ten years with the CMTC, he performed in numerous semester based shows as well as singing and dancing in flash mobs around Melbourne. His performances included back up dancing for Mark Andrews, one of the world ranked top Elvis impersonators. It wasn’t until he was in the last year of VCE that he fell in love with dance and went on to Deakin University to pursue a Bachelor of Creative Arts – Dance.
Unhappy with just the three years of contemporary dance training at Deakin, Josh went on to Spectrum Full-time Performing Arts graduating with Certificate IV in Dance and a Diploma of Musical Theatre. Working and training under Trish Squire-Rodgers he performed in the Grand Final Footy Show, Hugh Jackman’s Red Ball, Poker with the Stars and the 4 Orlando Comedy Festival back up dancing for Em Rusciano. Josh also does promotional work and performs regularly at private functions, weddings, corporate gigs including events at The Crown Palladium and Palms. As part of JAM Choreography Josh is choreographing a piece for Underground, a prestigious dance industry night later this year.
