Justin Conte was born and raised in Rochester, NY. He began dancing at the age of 15, soon realizing he had found a safe place to learn and grow. Over the past 7 years he's been teaching and choreographing around the United States as well as internationally. In addition to artistic directing and choreographing for his NYC based company, FEAR.Less, he has worked with the Civic Ballet in San Luis Obispo, CA, choreographing a contemporary/street fusion tour which traveled through China. He was also asked to teach an array of modern and jazz classes while studying dance at Syracuse University. After moving to NYC, Justin was exposed to a variety of street and freestyle movement, sparking inspiration. He began choreographing commercially for various recording artists traveling the U.S.
He has most recently been seen dancing with Dana Foglia as well as with artists such as Paula Abdul, Miley Cyrus, and Jordan Sparks. Also, he has made numerous TV appearances including dancing Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' on "Regis and Kelly."
His goal is to perpetuate organic, truthful movement within the boundary of our music and simply tell stories. He wants to relate to the public, open minds and help dissolve indifference in our generation.
"Our imagination is our tool. We train endlessly to dance, then to express, and ultimately to relate. Now if only we can harness truth in ourselves to express what our audience has once loved to feel, or even feared to feel... we will fulfill our job as moving artists."
