    Originally from Perth, Australia, Jordan began dancing at age five, then commenced his formal ballet training at age eleven at Charlesworth Ballet Institute. While attending CBI under the direction of Terri Charlesworth, he performed with the Youth Ballet WA [Western Australia] in various productions. At the age of 16 Jordan relocated to the United States to continue his training with the Washington School of Ballet, under the direction of Kee Juan Han. During his time at WSB, Jordan performed in numerous productions, such as Septime Webre’s The Great Gatsby and Ann Marie Holmes’ Le Corsaire. In 2012 Jordan took a trainee position with Ballet West, where worked daily with the company and learned a diverse repertoire by Balanchine and Ashton as well as the classics, leading to some great performing opportunities. During that year he was a semi-finalist in the Youth American Grand Prix. In 2013, Jordan joined The Sarasota Ballet as an apprentice, a company heavily influenced by Sir Fredrick Ashton. There he performed in many works, including Balanchine’s Rubies and Ashton’s La fille Mal Gardee. After a season as company member at Ballet Tucson, Jordan is excited about this season the Minnesota Ballet.
