Michael Humphrey is a professional dancer and choreographer. Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Michael moved to Indiana when he was nine and attended Lawrence North High School where he performed in musicals, plays, and for the competitive show choir team “New Dimension.” As a junior, he joined the competitive dance and cheerleading teams where he competed for two years on the Elite Jazz and Hip-Hop teams, as well as the varsity cheerleading squad.

Michael is passionate about dance performance and is genuinely excited to continue the legacy of the Brebeuf Jesuit program, as well as inspire and motivate the team into strong, educated, and talented young men and women. As an alumnus of the IHSDTA organization, he is ready to challenge and polish what the team already knows and get them ready for the next step in dance – whatever that may be. Michael brings a strong background of dance knowledge, laughter, and a caring attitude that will bring this team to new heights!
“Michael is a skilled dancer and choreographer with a wealth of experience at the high school, collegiate, and professional level. He has a passion and ability to connect with and teach young people, and a desire to dedicate himself to the mission of Brebeuf Jesuit in a purpose-driven, transformational, and education-based culture,” Brebeuf Athletic Director Ted Hampton said. “We are blessed to have him as part of our coaching family and school community.”
