Brock Jellison

Instructor

Tap, Musical Theatre

Brock grew up in his mother’s dance studio in the small town of Fort St John. He began teaching
at the age of 11 and by the age of 12, he began choreographing competitive tap pieces.
Trained in all facets of dance that he was near, including Irish, Brock won numerous awards as a
student. After graduating high school, Brock went on tour with the hit show Tap Dogs and
toured throughout the US. After tour completion, Brock taught many conventions and
workshops until he decided to join Princess Cruise lines in 2000. In 2003, Brock started his own
dance/production company, Ruckus Company Productions. He wrote, composed, designed,
choreographed, and performed in his original shows.
By 2009, Ruckus had performed three original productions to sold out audiences - “77
Minutes”, “Ricochet” and “Blue”, with Ricochet successfully touring BC in 2008-09. In his career,
he has worked on three major motion pictures gaining experience as Assistant Choreographer,
and lead member in the skeleton crews.
In 2010 Brock was given his ultimate opportunity, hired as Lead Tap Choreographer and
Featured Tap Soloist for the Vancouver Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies. This provided
excellent visibility and resulted in his performance receiving strong reviews worldwide.
Brock was also a featured soloist for the 2014 Calgary stampede “Grand Stand Show”, and in
2017 he performed a solo at Yukichi Hattori's "Blue Gala". Brock also played the role of "The Bear" The Queen, the bear and the bumble bee" at the Bella Theatre at Mount Royal.
He currently teaches at Airborne Dance in the NW of Calgary, as well as several other studio's
