Dance Magazine named Purchase College alum Jonathan Royse Windham ’11, one of “25 to Watch” in 2013.

Windham, 26, is currently a company member with Gallim Dance, a contemporary dance company based in Brooklyn, NY.

He began dancing at age 14 in his hometown of Vail, CO. and started his professional training at State University of New York at Purchase where he has received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance. After Purchase he was with American Repertory Ballet for a season dancing works by Twyla Tharp and Graham Lusitg. While dancing with the company he spent time working with Greg Dolbashian and the DASH Ensamble.  He has also worked with The Kevin Wynn Collective, Terra Firma Dance Theatre, Ballet Boy Productions, and Adam Barruch.

In 2009 Jonathan joined Gallim Dance, and since has performed at The Joyce Theater, New York City Center, Jacob’s Pillow, Spoleto Festival USA,  White Bird Dance, Madrid en Danza (Spain), Chutzpa! Festival (Canada).  Jonathan also performed as a principal dancer in the world premiere of “El Corregidor y la Molinera” choreographed by Ramon Oller at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in the Howard Gillman Opera House. He recently finished a dance for film with choreography by Alexandre Proia.

Dance Magazine blog post by Wendy Perron included a performance by Windham on a list of Best Performances in 2012. “Jonathan Royse Windham: losing himself in a supremely eccentric, poignantly unstable sequence in Andrea Miller’s Sit, Kneel, Stand at Gallim’s Joyce season,” she wrote.
