Blair Pausley

Blair PausleyI began my training in upstate New York studying Tap, Musical Theater, Ballet and Jazz. While still a student of David Shields, formerly of The Royal Ballet of England, I performed with the Syracuse Ballet Theater. My training continued with scholarships to study at American Ballet Theater and School of American Ballet as a year round student.

My performance credits include Ruth Page Chicago Ballet, Chicago City Ballet, Ballet Oklahoma, Zurich Ballet and Garden State Ballet. Performing with these companies gave me an opportunity to work with such renowned choreographers as Agnes DeMille and Ruth Page.

I made New York City my home base. I am currently teaching and choreographing Tap, Musical Theater, Ballet and Jazz at various schools in the Tri State Area. Additionally, I have completed Romana’s Pilates certification program, inclusive of teaching instruction of students and clients. In my classes I focus on individual attention, precise musicality and technique in a positive atmosphere allowing each student to be the best dancer they can be.

My students have won awards at Regional and National level competitions such as Starpower, Headliners, Access Broadway, Dance Olympus, Onstage New York and various others. Season awards include several High Score Awards, Power Pak Award for Junior Tap Large Group at Star Power, Outstanding Choreography for Musical Solo at P.D.T.A., Best Musical Theater Group at Onstage New York and 2nd Place Overall in Dance Off at P.D.T.A Nationals in Atlantic City.
