Dancer Justin Rapaport

Justin Rapaport (he/him) is from Miami, Florida, where he began dancing at the age of 8. He went on to formally train at New World School of the Arts, followed by The Juilliard School, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts. During his training, Justin had the opportunity to perform works by Jiří Kylián, Twyla Tharp, Kyle Abraham, Camille A. Brown and Brian Brooks in repertory and creations alike. Since joining Ballet BC, Justin has performed works around the world by choreographers such as Crystal Pite, William Forsythe, Aszure Barton, Ohad Naharin, Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, Johan Inger, Emily Molnar and Medhi Walerski. Justin created Passing By, a duet with Evan Rapaport and Rae Srivastava for TAKE FORM. For that work, Justin was selected as a finalist of the Copenhagen International Choreography Competition, where he was awarded the Danish Dance Theater Award. Outside of dance, Justin loves being outdoors biking, swimming or hiking, and he loves some occasional decadent donuts. This is Justin’s sixth season with Ballet BC.
