maker. new yorker. open.

Al Blackstone is an Emmy-nominated director, choreographer, and educator. His passion for bringing people together to experience something meaningful drives him to make dances, tell stories, and encourage joyful connection. Born in New Jersey and raised in a dance studio, he has called New York City home for more than a decade.  In that time he has created emotional work for the stage and screen, thrown dance parties for charity, and introduced hundreds of people to one another. 

He believes deeply in the power of dance, community, and kindness.  

Blackstone is a choreographic novelist; he creates character, illustrates intention, and synthesizes subtext as organically as a poet might scribe a sonnet.
