Jacob Glanton was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. He began his dance career by performing in musical theatre productions. Later, he discovered his love for dance and began formally training in jazz. His high school years were spent busy competing and attending dance conventions, furthering his dance technique. Jacob then started training in classical ballet at Master Ballet Academy to hone his technique and discovered he wanted to pursue a career in the performing arts. After high school, he left Arizona for beautiful Southern California, where he began a year of training under Shannon Mather and her amazing faculty in her Bridge into the Industry program. Jacob has been performing, training, and auditioning for the past year in Los Angeles, but is excited to be back in Arizona to share his experiences with Studio 3’s talented youth.
