Freedom Soloist & Tapper 26th June to 5th August
Michael Wood was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, but raised in Dallas, Texas. From before he could remember Michael has had a passion for the performing arts. Growing up he found himself dancing to Michael Jackson and singing to whatever was on the radio. In school he was always a part of the choir, but was never afforded the opportunity for classical dance training. At the age of 18 Michael started his technical dance training at Oklahoma City University, where he studied Ballet, Jazz, and first put on his tap shoes. After graduating in 2008 with a degree in Dance Performance, Michael spent a couple years as a singer/dancer on Norwegian Cruise Lines before finally making his way to New York City.
Michael is thankful for all the support and encouragement from his friends and family.
