Todd Flanagan, an Arkansas native, always had big city lights and stars in his eyes. He knew at an early age that he wanted to be “inside the television”. In 2007, after graduating from Southern Arkansas University with a BA in Theatre, he made the move to LA to pursue his dreams.
While his first passion is acting, after settling into North Hollywood, he quickly fell in love with dance. Within just a few short years, he went from training to realizing his gift for teaching young dancers. His charismatic and caring approach makes him a highly sought after mentor to the youth.
Todd’s professional credits include Dr. Phil for Matty B and featured choreographer judge, assisting world renowned choreographers and industry professionals, Chonique Sneed and Lisette Bustamante on Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale stage show, America’s Best Dance Crew; assisting Krista Miller on the Skechers Industrial Show; and working with Lavelle Smith, Laurieann Gibson, and Theresa Espinosa.
Todd is faculty at Manhattan Dance Project, Millennium Dance Complex, Mather Dance Company, as well as guest teacher/choreographer across the US and internationally. He continues to play an integral part in the development of collectiveUth, an organization that offers training opportunities to dancers globally. His desire to educate, motivate, inspire is far-reaching and he is building a legacy by touching the lives of young dancers.
