On tour with Jump in Atlanta, Blackstone recently made time in his extremely busy schedule to sit down and talk about his choreographic style, his inspirations, the challenges of being a touring teacher and how to make the most of a convention experience. His story is fascinating and he shares great advice for young students about dance and life.

It was such a joy to speak with him because he is so incredibly articulate and passionate. He’s one of those people whom you can tell would be an amazing student, because he approaches his craft from the heart but also with an academic mind.

Watch his interview below to learn more about this incredible human.
