Church under the mentorship of Beverly Barber, PhD., and former Associate Professor of Dance Studies in the Department of Physical Education at Florida A&M University.

In 2010, he was among 15 student dancers from New World School of the Arts Dance Program chosen to go to the Czech Republic for the International Dance Festival of Prague, where he danced BATTLEFIELD (Robert Battle). The cast of BATTLEFIELD won three awards including the main overall first place award from the festival.

As a teacher he has mentored and coached many young artist from the Miami-Dade County area (Miami, Fla.), Leon County (Tallahassee, Fla.), St. Louis, MO., and Baltimore. These young dancers have gone on to dance in some of the most prestigious performing arts magnate schools and conservatories, college programs both regional and national. Some of these students have gone on to join prestigious dance companies and other arts organizations. Mr. Mitchell’s approach has been seen as bridging the gap between traditional and twenty-first century pop culture, preparing students to be successful in both the commercial dance and concert dance world.


As a choreographer Mr. Mitchell’s research has been focused on the black male identity as it relates to LGBTQ culture in our society in the twenty-first century. He believes that living in a hyper-masculine male dominated society has impacted both male sensibility and the perception that follows men who may or may not necessarily subscribe to such norms. Informed by his background as a  vogue dancer, activist, and research he has created choreography that utilizes components from theater and club dance performance as a vehicle for story telling. Interested in telling such stores, which have a historical and personal significance allows him to create an atmosphere within his work whereby research and scholarship are approached methodically.

By creating a vocabulary that fuses Vogue dance, Ballet, Modern, Afro-Caribbean, and Theater, his choreographic work provides a platform to educate audiences about diversity while also exploring universal themes.
