Hutch Hagendorf, originally from Houston, began dancing at the age of nine at West University Dance Center under Evelyn Ireton. During high school, he danced with his studio’s competition group Soul Discretion (artistic director Kelly Ann Vitacca) and performed with Exclamation Dance Company (Kenneth Epting, director). He went on to receive his BFA in dance at the University of Arizona School of Dance. Workshops include Perry-Mansfield, David Parsons, Alvin Ailey Extension, Paul Taylor, Doug Varone, NW Dance Project Launch, and Axis Connect. His first job after graduating in 2015 was with Royal Caribbean International. After completing two cruise contracts, Hutch settled in New York City in 2017 and has since worked with iKADA Contemporary Dance Company under Mee Jung and most recently with De Funes Dance under the direction of Diego De Funes. This is Hutch’s first season with Spectrum Dance Theater.
