Born in Atlanta and raised in Pennsylvania, Myles Thatcher was always into dance. At the age of 13/14, he had to determine if he wanted to pursue classical ballet or not. He committed and by the age of 17, he had moved to New York City to train and eventually moved to San Francisco for the trainee program with the SF Ballet. After years of training, Myles became an official member of the SF Ballet.
Ballet connoisseurs have said that Myles is “far beyond his years” and in 2018, Myles choreographed critically acclaimed ballet ‘Otherness.’ ‘Otherness,’ which focuses on how we are forced to label ourselves, stood out not only because of its unique choreography and premise but also because it was soundtracked by music by Björk.
Today, Myles Thatcher is in the prime of his career as both a dancer and choreographer (don’t ask him to choose though) for the SF Ballet. Learn about Myles’ motivation, creative process and so much more on this week’s episode of Uncensored Visionary: A LGBTQ Podcast.
