Skyler Newcom embarked on his journey through dance in his hometown of Lawrenceville, GA under the guidance of Jeff Boss and Jamie Wardrop. After many years in the competition circuits of the southeast, he has fostered extensive training in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, and hip-hop. In 2015, Skyler accepted a scholarship to continue his training at the University Of Arizona School Of Dance. In pursuit of furthering his studies in all areas, Skyler had the privilege of performing works by Autumn Eckman, Nacho Duato, Jessica Lang, George Balanchine, Michael Williams, Sam Watson, James Clouser, Tamara Dyke-Compton, and Amy Ernst among many. Skyler was also gifted the chance of performing with Hawkinsdance, a contemporary company out of Tucson, AZ, impacting and furthering the growth of the arts community. Since graduating with a B.F.A. in dance in May of 2019, Skyler has moved to Chicago to become part of the Giordano Family. He joined the second company as a Junior Performing Associate in 2019. Seasoned by a year in the Chicago Dance community, as well as the second company, Skyler is now a main company member for Giordano Dance Chicago. His goal is to enlighten and inspire audiences by evoking real world issues through movement. He plans to do this by building a community of light and love with an emphasis on the importance and beauty of artistic education. He aims to grow and mature as an artist, performer, and role model as he aims even higher. “Higher than the Heavens”.
