After 10 years at New Dimensions, Colin moved to New York City to attend the School of American Ballet, the official school of the New York City Ballet. During his senior year, he became a YoungArts winner for both Ballet and Modern.

He was also selected for Juilliard's Choreographers and Composers performance. In 2016, Colin created and produced COOKIE, a multi-disciplinary work featuring dance, drama, projections, and live music, performed at ArtsOnSite in New York City.
