Joseph grew up in Palos Verdes, California, and began his dance training with tap and jazz before starting ballet at age 15. He trained with Diane Lauridsen at South Bay Ballet for 3 years before attending the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance as member of its inaugural class. There, he worked closely with William Forsythe and the other faculty refining his technique and developing a broader understanding of what being a multifaceted artist within the ballet world means. He has attended summer programs at Jacob’s Pillow, Royal Danish Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Joffrey Ballet Chicago, and Ballet West all with scholarship. Joseph is incredibly excited to be joining Oklahoma City Ballet for their 2019/20 season.
