Master Classes with Dante Puleio
Dante Puleio is a Jersey Boy. He began dancing shortly after learning how to walk. He didn't begin training though until he was 19 years old in London, UK at the Laban Centre. While abroad in London he was afforded the opportunity to dance with members of the Royal Ballet, then continued his training at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, UK. In 1999 he graduated with a BFA from University of the Arts in Philadelphia where he danced with Koresh Dance Co., Brian Sanders of JUNK, and Pennsylvania Ballet Theatre. Upon graduation, he moved to NYC and danced with Carolyn Dorfman, Gabriel Masson and the Limon Dance Company.
After several years with Limon, he took a hiatus to explore his first love, musical theatre, and performed in Broadway shows such as The Who's Tommy and The Wizard of Oz, as well as getting involved with commercial and industrial work with Tony Stevens and Jason Robert Brown. Before rejoining Limon in 2008 he danced with his step mom on Lifetime TV's dance competition Your Mama Don't Dance
with choreographer, Marguerite Derricks, where Ben Vereen told him, "I love watching you dance, its so delicious, it feels like butter."
Now with Limon, he is a principal and soloist. He spends most of the year rehearsing and touring with the company as well as setting Limon work and holding residencies as a teacher and choreographer with dance schools, universities and companies in North, Central, and South America as well as Europe and Asia.
