Torens L. Johnson
is a native of Smithfield, VA. He matriculated from Governor’s Magnet School of the Performing Arts (Norfolk, VA), and continued pursuing higher learning in dance with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center as a certificate student (New York, New York). Mr. Johnson excelled at Alvin Ailey and after completing his certificate program, he continued on to perform with the national and internationally known Ailey II, which is a part of the Ailey Organization and he continues to teach with AileyCamp every year.
Mr. Johnson relocated to Kansas City, MO to work as an Artist in Resident with the Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey, while attending the University of Missouri (Kansas City, MO), for Dance Performance. He later transferred moved to Baltimore, MD to complete his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Towson University and to accept an opportunity as an Instructor of Dance with Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School (Baltimore, MD), where he worked with grades K through 12.
Another promotion took Mr. Johnson and his knowledge of dance and movement back to Missouri where he became Director of Dance at Paseo Academy of the Fine & Performing Arts. All the while, Mr. Johnson never took lightly the importance of maintaining higher levels of education; he continued improving on his craft by taking more classes to obtain his certification in Dance at the University of Missouri (St. Louis, MO).

Mr. Johnson has many notable professional accomplishments within the dance community and within musical theater.
