Harry’s formal training in classical ballet began at the age of six.  He has been awarded numerous scholarships through which he has attended the School of American Ballet in NYC, San Francisco Ballet, Palucca Hochschule fur Tanz (SemperOper Ballett), Dresden, Germany and the Barbara Sandonato School of Ballet, Philadelphia, PA.


His major influences in dance have been his teacher, Barbara Sandonato, former principal dancer of Pennsylvania Ballet, George Balanchine, founder and choreographer of NYC Ballet and contemporary choreographer, William Forsythe.


His academic education includes The Philadelphia School, Center School, Delaware Valley Friends and Upattinas School & Resource Center.  Extracurricular activities include fencing and horseback riding.  In addition to school and dance, he’s worked for several retail companies including Club Monaco, American Apparel and Urban Outfitters.  His work experience encompasses selling, styling, merchandising and customer service.


After studying, dancing and working in Philadelphia and Dresden, Harry decided to expand his focus to include Video and Film Direction.  In 2013, he accepted an internship at Klip Collective, a visual art shop integrating projection lighting and technology with storytelling to create compelling experiences on behalf of institutions, corporate clients and cultural partners.  Photographer Pier Nicola D’Amico and video artist Ricardo Rivera founded Klip in 2003 to create immersive and large-scale video projection experiences.


In 2016 Harry will continue to focus on dance, film and fashion with a passion for becoming a creative film director.
