Joseph Malone knew from the moment he was in his first musical in high school that performing was going to be his career. Finding that college would not offer the path to his dream, Joe started his formal dance training at Eugene Loring's "The American School of Dance.” Over the years, Joe has sung and danced in over 250 television shows, specials, films, and nightclub acts including on Broadway when Director/Choreographer Michael Peters (of Michael Jackson fame) hired him to sing and dance in, Leader Of The Pack.

 

Deciding to expand his dancing and singing career, Joe started acting landing roles in the feature films, I’ll Do Anything, Universal Soldier, and the ever-popular Disney offering, Hocus Pocus. He has also guest starred on many television shows including Seinfeld, Step by Step, Quantum Leap, Newhart and L.A. Law. Fortune smiled when a guest-starring role on the Emmy Award winning Tracey Ullman Show led to Joe being cast as a series regular. His work, both as an actor and as a choreographer, on The Tracey Ullman Show, Tracey Takes On... and Tracey Ullman’s, State of the Union as well as his 25 year + relationship with the brilliant actress, Tracey Ullman, are among his favorite experiences.

 

Shortly after, Joe began concentrating more on his directing and choreography career, choreographing shows such as Ugly Betty, Boston Legal, Boston Public, Two and a Half Men, Ally McBeal, Judging Amy, Joan of Arcadia, Beverly Hills -90210, and an animated sequence for the Disney feature, Tinkerbelle. He has also had the honor to serve as Director/Choreographer for Sunday in the Park with George, which he restaged for Reprise! at UCLA , as well as the opening sequence of Tracey Ullman's television series Visible Panty Line. In addition, Joe has directed and choreographed two National Tours for country music legend, Barbara Mandrell, and decided to return to Broadway in 2005 as a choreographer, contributing to Lennon; a musical based on the life of the prolific artist, John Lennon.

 

In 2000, Joe was honored with an Emmy nomination for Best Achievement in Choreography for his work on Tracey Takes On..., and again in 2003 with another Best Achievement in Choreography nomination for his work on Boston Public. Joe was also recognized for his choreographic efforts on Ally McBeal with an American Choreography Award, and received another American Choreography Award for his work on Boston Public.  Additionally, Joe has been honored with The Lehman Award, The National Academy of Dance Award-Best Choreography on a Television Series for his work on The Tracey Ullman Show. However, out of all of his accolades, his most meaningful was receiving The Min-on Art Award, The SGI Culture Award, The Soka Art Award and The SGI Culture Pin from his mentor in life, Dr. Daisaku Ikeda for his contribution toward the realization of lasting world peace through culture and art.

 

In 1992, alongside dancer Nanci Hammond (and wife of 31 years), he established The Performing Arts Center, a school that focuses on the training of young artists who dream of a career in the performing arts. Two years later Joe and Nanci also established the Mandalone Project, now re-named Artists in Concert; a company dedicated to developing music and dance related projects in a concert style setting.

 

Recently, Joe has been working with the International Committee of Artists for Peace (ICAP), and has had the distinct privilege to help create, direct, and choreograph an in-school anti-bullying program called iChoose. This program is designed to empower the youth by helping them become more self-aware while showing them alternative choices to violence. This program’s philosophy, based on the humanistic principles of both respect for oneself as well as others, has been attended and lauded by thousands of students, teachers, and community leaders. It has been implemented in middle schools and high schools both nationally and internationally including Hawai’i, Los Angeles, New York, New Jersey, Oslo, Norway and most recently Auckland, New Zealand.

 

Joe is currently developing and creating an original show based on the Buddhist ideals for peace. He credits his success to his practice of Nichiren Daishonin Buddhism, the compassionate training of many dedicated teachers, and the unconditional support of wonderful friends and family. His wife Nanci and two sons Patrick and Michael are without a doubt his greatest treasures.
