Luke Csordas grew up outside of Allentown, Pennsylvania where he was drawn to dance due to its ability to tell stories and ignite joy. He studied at the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance where he trained with role models such as William Forsythe, Jermaine Spivey, Bret Easterling, and Jodie Gates. He is passionate about bettering his community, having served on the Student Advisory Board all four years of his undergraduate studies. While studying to receive his BFA in Dance, Luke also focused on Cinematic Arts at USC’s SCA. Intersecting dance and media, Luke hopes to achieve his goals using cinematic storytelling in order to share, listen, and encourage empathy through stories told by dancers. He is looking forward to this next chapter with Charlotte Ballet.
