Travis Morrison is a native of Dallas, Texas. He received his early training in Richardson, Texas from Tanju Tuzer and Paul Mejia and at SUNY Purchase from Ted Kivitt, Richard Cooke, Larry Clark, Stephanie Tooman, and Rosana Seravalli. He also attended the Miami City Ballet School and received training from Truman Finney, Edward Villella and Geta Constantinescu, among others.
Morrison attended summer programs on scholarship at American Ballet Theatre, the Harid Conservatory, San Francisco Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet and at the 42nd annual Bartholin International Ballet Seminar in Copenhagen, Demark. He completed the Miami City Ballet Pre-Professional Program in 2006. In 2009, Morrison was a competitor in the New York International Ballet Competition. Inspired by the strong support of the performing arts in the Denver community, coupled with Bogg’s vision for Colorado Ballet, Morrison joined Colorado Ballet’s Studio Company after graduating from the Miami City Ballet program in 2006. He was selected to join the Company in 2008 and since then, has had the privilege of working with noted choreographers such as Michael Pink, Eldar Aliev, John Gardner, Amanda McKerrow, Lila York and Septime Webre. Morrison has danced a wide range of roles including Spanish in Swan Lake and Toreador and Gypsy in Don Quixote. He especially enjoyed performing in the ballets by modern choreographers including Eventually by Brian Reeder and Things Left Unsaid by Amy Seiwert.
