He later studied at the School of Richmond Ballet under Igor Antanov, Malcolm Burn, and others. ​After spending three years at Richmond Ballet, he was accepted as a trainee while completing his senior year. After graduating, Brandon spent one year at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Purchase College Conservatory for Dance, and was soon offered a position with Atlanta Ballet 2 where he danced for two seasons and later as a company member with Columbia City Ballet. At Fort Wayne Ballet, he has danced Sugar Plum Cavalier in The Nutcracker, Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and in Itlaian Suite and Empyrean Dances. Brandon is excited for his second season and would like to immensely thank his family for all of their support.
