A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Ben began his dance training with Marianne Hebert and Madalyn Montegudo. He then went on to dance at Baton Rouge Ballet Theater and summer programs at Ballet Austin, Harid Conservatory, and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.

Performances at IU include lead roles in George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments and Rubies, Twyla Tharp’s Sweet Fields, and Agnes deMille’s Rodeo, as well as dancing in works by Jacques Cesbron, Matthew Neenan, Vaslav Njinisky, and Michael Vernon. Ben also danced with Ballet Memphis, where he performed works by choreographers Steven McMahon and Jane Comfort. He was singled out by Alistair Macauly as one of the most memorable “Mother Gingers” in the NYTimes dance critic’s 2010 national Nutcracker tour.
