Back to Team

An LA native, JM. Rodriguez graduated from the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts where he trained in Ballet, Horton (under the mentorship of legendary Horton Master Don Martin), and Luigi Jazz.

JM. since has been working both commercially, as well in the concert dance scene.  After being signed with agents at 19, JM. began working as a professional dancer for TV shows and touring shows.  He’s worked with artists such as Katy Perry, Arcade Fire, and The Marias; has danced in shows such as Disney’s Shake It Up, Apple TV’s ROAR, Disney Plus’ Mysterious Benedict Society, and Netflix’s Dear White People; has worked with choreographers such as Nina McNeely, Fatima Robinson, Marguerite Derricks,  Ryan Heffington, and many more.

Since the summer of 2012, JM. has been performing and touring as a company member with the Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company and has had the opportunity to work with choreographers such as Christian Denice, Roderick George,  Alice Clock, and Whytberg (founders of GroundGrooves) to name a few.   With over 10 years of experience in both working commercially and in the company world, JM. has begun to fuse his mix of contemporary, which incorporates much of his Horton roots, with a mix of commercial-esque musicality, and contemporary flow.  He aims to create the kind of environment where everyone in the space can discover fulfillment in the process of learning through movement and music.
