Max Levy began his ballet training at the Haruyama Ballet Academy and Yamaji Ballet School at the age of 7. After continued training at Boulder Ballet School, he joined the prestigious San Francisco Ballet Trainee Program under direction of Jean-Yves Esquerre. During his education, he won several prizes in the Denver Ballet Guild's Young Dancer's Competition as well as regional awards at the Youth America Grand Prix. He also performed the leading role in John Neumeier's Yondering for his final year, as well as participating in numerous improvisational workshops with Amy Raymond, Natalie Thomas, and Paula Miguélez Lucena.
As a professional, Max began his career with American Repertory Ballet under the direction of Graham Lustig, followed by Charlotte Ballet, under the direction of Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux. Most recently, he was a soloist with Staatsballett Nürnberg, under the direction of Goyo Montero.
He has danced numerous roles by prominent choreographers, both in the American and European dance communities, including Crystal Pite, Cayetano Soto, William Forsythe, Johan Inger, Mats Ek, Ohad Naharin, Jeroen Verbruggen, Christian Spuck, Goyo Montero, Mauro Bigonzetti, Nacho Duato, Jiří Bubeníček, Gentian Doda, James Sutherland, Emery LeCrone, and Dwight Rhoden. He has also been nominated for “Outstanding Performance by a Male Dancer” by Dance Europe.
His choreography has been performed in evenings with the Staatsballett Nürnberg, the Freier Tanz im Delta Festival in Mannheim, and Performing Arts Festival Berlin, as well as with dancers of Staatsballett Berlin as part of Images. He has been awarded “Best Dancer” by SOLOCOREOGRAFICO 2017, and his works have been recognized at the 32nd International Choreography Competition, Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition, and Gdansk Dance Festival. His full-evening work Meditations opened to sold-out evenings at ACUD Theater in Berlin. He now works as a freelance dancer and choreographer based in Berlin, bringing a meditative approach to athletic, movement-driven works in a world of detached fantasy.
