BFA Class of 2019
Concentration in Choreography for Stage & Cinematic Arts
Johnson has danced and choreographed for Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Kyle Abraham, Daniel Ezralow, Emma Portner and more. In addition, he participated in Gucci’s fall 2019 ad campaign and formed JA, a choreographic collective, with Aidan Carberry. Along with various summer music festivals and a world tour for half•alive, JA will present work at Congress: Legalize Dance and at Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre’s The Fish, and was recently nominated at the World Choreography Awards. Johnson will continue to create concert dance work for the stage, create experimental work for artists, choreograph for films and create commercial content.
Johnson’s aim is “to make art that connects people to heart of truth, breaks chains, sets captives free, and breathes life into dead bones.”
