ABOUT THE CREATOR
Joseph Corella is a Choreographer, Broadway performer, dance teacher, and fitness instructor, but at his core, Joseph is a teacher.
Using his dance, theatre, and fitness background, he has traveled the globe, spreading this love and understanding of the importance of movement. Joseph’s connection to movement started in his early childhood with extensive training in jazz, tap, contemporary, and ballet. At thirteen, he became a member of famed choreographer Marguerite Derricks’ prestigious dance company, Tremaine Teen Company, and shortly thereafter appeared in Disney’s Geppetto alongside pop superstar Usher.
Joseph then moved to New York City where he debuted on Broadway in All Shook Up and subsequently toured the US with productions of Grease (Dance Captain) and West Side Story. Other theatrical credits include: Surf: The Musical, CATS, Altar Boyz, Guys and Dolls, and much more. Building on his dance and vocal talent, Joseph studied at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in New York City and honed his comedic skills with Upright Citizens Brigade.
After his time in New York City, Joseph then moved to Los Angeles to start a new adventure. Some of his work in Los Angeles include partnering actress & Pop Star Selena Gomez on the Disney Hit TV Show Wizards of Waverly Place, and working with comedian Rebel Wilson to create “Catzercise!”
As a choreographer, Joseph has been asked to choreograph on a number of high-profile projects ranging from the hit Lifetime reality show Dance Moms, the HBO special A Quinceañera Story, MTV Video Music Awards, CW's Hart of Dixie & much more! Joseph has also choreographed for numerous recording artists including Neon Trees & 98 Degrees!
Joseph also teamed up with fitness guru, Cassey Ho of Blogilates, and Pop Pilates for a YouTube collaboration.
He also collaborated with Michelle Khare of “Challenge Accepted” fame, serving as her co-star and coach for YouTube Rewind: The Musical.
