SPRING ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Joe Forzano grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, where he began dancing at the age of 11 in beginner break dance classes. However, by 13 he had moved to the small town of Milford, Connecticut and unfortunately gave up dancing until his college years. Shortly after arriving at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Joe joined the hip-hop and contemporary fusion dance company Strictly Funk. Throughout his four years with the company, Joe choreographed a total of 20 different staged pieces and co-directed two Strictly Funk productions including The Asylum (2010) and No Place Like Home (2013). Joe joined EPIC Motion during Season 5 and served at Artistic Director for the company’s Spring 2016 production “The Electric Lady”.  Joe is ecstatic to be dancing with EPIC Motion and pursuing his love for the fusion of hip-hop and contemporary movement.
