He has participated in various performances, competitions, and intensives such as The Joffrey Ballet summer intensive, The School at Jacob’s pillow summer intensive, and The New York City Dance Alliance summer intensive. After graduating high school, Dominic moved to New York City to pursue dance at The Ailey School through the independent program, and trained under teachers such as Milton Meyers, Guillermo Asca, Hollie Wright, Michael Leon Thomas, and Marianne Bachmann. Dominic strives to take what has been shared with him to help other students find a healthy outlet through dance, to find their own voice, how to approach new material and thought processes, to explore different energies within movement, and continues to express how important it is to find infinite possibilities of the body and mind.
