“Art is the only serious thing in the world. And the artist is the only person who is never serious.”
– Oscar Wilde

Born and raised in the small town of Halkirk, Alberta, Joshua Blumhagen was exposed to the world of dance through his first hip hop class at the age of seven. He immediately fell in love with the craft and spent the majority of his youth seeking out opportunities to train in a wide variety of styles. This developed the foundation for Joshua’s exceptional versatility and his uniquely dynamic freestyle. Beyond the movement, Joshua gained an immense appreciation of hip hop’s history, learning from some of the earliest pioneers of the style. Joshua continues to preserve the essential roots of the culture in his own modernized take. Today, Joshua’s movement is heavily influenced by the styles of popping, locking, hip hop, and animation. Joshua moved to Vancouver immediately after high school in the enthusiastic pursuit of new opportunities in dancing, acting, and choreography.

Through his experience in competitive dance, Joshua has performed and earned titles on world-renowned stages such as Hip Hop International, Vibe, Dancer’s Paradise, and Body Rock. The competitive scene offered him the opportunity to work closely and consistently with internationally acclaimed choreographers such as Scott Forsyth, Luther Brown, Bradley Rapier, and many more.

Most recently, Joshua has had the opportunity to work on high profile projects such as Jordan Peele’s reboot of CBS’s ‘Twilight Zone’, Netflix’s feature sequel: ‘Christmas Chronicles 2’, and NBC’s ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ under the direction of Emmy award winning choreographer Mandy Moore.

Joshua is a hard-working individual with a commitment to perfection and a passion for his craft. His extensive training as a freestyle dancer gives his movement a sense of individuality, while his years dancing with competitive crews offers him the intuition to work as an excellent addition to any team.
