Hamilton Performing Artist Residency at Cox Mill High School 11/01/2018
In the room where it happens… the Cox Mill High School Dance Ensembles hosted Mr. Brandt Martinez for a day of master classes. Mr. Martinez is an ensemble cast member and dancer in the musical theater production Hamilton which is touring the United States. Hamilton is currently being performed nightly at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte. Providing the CMHS dance students with an opportunity to learn from a current performing artist within their skill set area could be likened to hosting a strength and conditioning clinic with Luke Kuechly, a creative writing symposium with J.K. Rowling, or a culinary masterclass with Gordon Ramsey.
Guest artist Brandt Martinez is originally from Peoria, Arizona where he trained at a very young age at Spisak Dance Academy. He later furthered his dance education at Tempe Dance Academy where he learned many different styles that make him the versatile dancer he is today. He is internationally known as a teacher, dancer, and choreographer who has danced all over the nation and has performed in over fifteen different countries since 2009. Beyond Hamilton, his musical theatre production experience includes appearances in Moulin Rouge, Aladdin, and Fiddler on the Roof.
