JASON GORMAN started dancing at the age of 11 with the Celtic Gold Academy of Irish Dance in Westminister, CA. He competed until age 15 winning numerous regional and national titles. While attending Wilson High School in Long Beach, CA, Jason’s passion for movement expanded to ballet and jazz in a program that allowed him to grow technically as a dancer as well as a choreographer. At age 16 he left to join the cast of ‘Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance’ in Las Vegas where he performed the title role for 4 years before joining a touring cast of ‘Lord’ where he performed for another 6 years traveling to many countries including Ireland, England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Greece, Italy, Israel, China, Chile and Taiwan as well as the United States and Canada. During this time he also performed and trained with Nate Hodges contemporary/jazz company RhetOracle, which is currently in their 7th season. This year, Jason furthered his passion for choreography and performance by founding a dance company with his close friend Nicole Hogg called Marrow Dance. Marrow is a Southern California based dance company that would engage the viewer by dissecting the human condition through the use of intricate gestural movement and dynamic musicality. The aim of Marrow is to inspire both artist and audience through passionate movement that focuses on honesty and raw emotion with a strong backbone of technique and training.
