Bruce makes dances. A nationally acclaimed artistic director, performer, teacher; he has created more than 75 contemporary works over the past 15 years. His choreography is known for its poignant insights into present-day life charged with emotional undercurrents, rich imagery, wide range of subject matter, and audience appeal. At age 16, Wood left his native Fort Worth on a full scholarship to the School of American Ballet under the tutelage of the legendary George Balanchine. Among his performance credentials are New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Les Ballet Jazz des Montreal, and the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company. Returning to Fort Worth in 1996, Wood founded and was sole choreographer of the Bruce Wood Dance Company until 2007. In 2010, Wood became Artistic Director of the Dallas-based Bruce Wood Dance Project. BWDP is dedicated to cultivating original work and advancing professional dance in Texas.
