John Diaz

In 1989, John began a professional career in Dance shortly after completing his coursework at California State University Fresno. John has worked nationally and abroad in Europe and South America as a professional Dance performer, Choreographer and Educator. In 2010, his work was broadcast nationally in a documentary about the local dance project “Trolley Dances” on PBS. In 2011, he was a contributor to the San Diego Union Tribune as a First Person. He has performed with City Ballet of San Diego, San Diego Ballet, San Diego Dance Theater, San Diego Opera, and Wendy Rogers among others. John’s hope is to facilitate the stability, adaptability, radiance, grace, and directness inherent in everyone through movement education and dance performance.
