Chase Buntrock is from Chicago, Illinois. He began as a competitive gymnast for ten years but found dance at age thirteen in pursuit of a more artistic outlet. After graduating from Chicago Academy for the Arts in 2015, Chase attended The Juilliard School in New York City from which he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in dance. Throughout his career, he has performed works by Sharon Eyal, Crystal Pite, Merce Cunningham, Roy Assaf, and more. Chase has furthered his training at San Francisco Ballet, Arts Umbrella, Nederlands Dans Theater, and Springboard Danse Montreal. Additionally, he is grateful to have participated in educational outreach programs that served the five boroughs of New York City. Chase is thrilled to be joining Ballet BC for the 2019/20 season.
