Trained as a gymnast and a springboard diver through his teens (he lettered at Cal), he started taking dance seriously at age 19, as a sophomore in UC Berkeley's dance program, under Marni Thomas Wood, distinguished alumna of the Martha Graham Dance Company. While the program gave him a rigorous grounding in Graham and Cunningham technique, he got his ballet fix at Berkeley Ballet Theater.
Summers at the American Dance Festival in North Carolina brought him in contact with Tatiana Baganova, who whisked him off to dance with her Provincial Dances Theatre, a pioneering modern dance company in Russia. So, straight out of college, the inexperienced Slender-White found himself in the industrial city of Yekaterinburg the first and only American dancer in a company that was heroically fusillading centuries-old traditions of classical dance in Russia. He recalls his two years with the company as inspiring and grueling, surrounded by the highest caliber dancers and immersed in the revolutionary repertoire that Baganova was introducing to Russian audiences.
He was particularly proud of having danced in Baganova's updating of the 1923 Nijinska-Stravinsky classic, Les Noces, and in her surrealist Wings at Tea, inspired by a Chagall painting. The latter involved flying pigs, women made up like dolls, with massive coiffures, men in business suits, both sexes smoking cigarettes like chimneys. They danced the samba with buckets of water, into which the women dipped their hair, then flung their wet hair around. Which all made for treacherous partnering.
Lured back to California's sunnier climes, Slender-White formed his own company, and in 2012, in a fitting nod to his Russian influences, he took FACT/SF on tour to eight cities across Russia, with the support of the U.S. State Department.

The 25-year-old, who previously quit Twitter and Instagram after being taunted by trolls following her Robin's death, went on to say that she wasn't sure how she'd be using her account in the future. "As for this Instagram, I don't know in what capacity I'll continue using it in the future, but I'm leaving it up regardless so that fake accounts hoping to use my name or misuse my family's photos will get no traction," she wrote. "To be clear, this is MY ONLY account. Publicly, I have Twitter, and this. If other people post quotes and photos claiming to be me or my family, please, do not send them personal information or click links, even for charity.They could be utilizing sympathy to scam you. For the record, no one has ever or will ever speak for me but me. Thank you."

Johansson stars alongside Gordon-Levitt, Julianne Moore and Tony Danza in a film about a man who is addicted to porn.
Earlier this week, the 28-year-old star spoke out about her engagement to French journalist Romain Dauriac, whom she had been dating since at least November 2012. "My friend was like 'congrats on timing,'" she told "ET Canada," in reference to the added publicity while touring for a movie. "Things work out the way they do. Maybe it's better just to get it out the way."
The 25-year-old dancer-turned-actress was in town for fashion week, but also attended the Estee Lauder Modern Muse Fragrance Launch Party on Sept. 12, where she wore a sheer white dress.
"My style has completely evolved from when I was first on 'Dancing with the Stars.' I can actually see the real color of my skin now," Hough recently told ET Online of her changing style. "I think it was a lot more glitz and glamour and costume, and I think now I'm trying to be a little bit more natural and understated -- but still fun -- but definitely a bit more everyday. I don't think I could walk down the street with some ballroom shoes on, and a little glitzy outfit, and feel comfortable. I think this is way more me now." THIS probably meaning short shorts and t-shirts.
