Concentration in Choreography for Stage & Cinematic Arts
In the past year, Balka has found a love for nonprofit development. He interned with Gibney Dance and Dancers Responding to AIDS and raised over $2,000 for DRA by producing a benefit show with the SC Choreographic Collective. As he begins to audition for dance companies, he hopes to one day transition from contemporary dancer to choreographer and director. He hopes to pursue nonprofit development simultaneously. Balka aims to provide a platform for arts advocacy by making resources available to underprivileged students of the arts.
“Throughout my career, I want to blend passions of performance, collaboration, aesthetic and activism into thoughtful narratives,” he said.
