He danced the role of Dream Hansel in Opera Columbus' Hansel and Gretel and danced the role of Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Lancaster Arts Festival in 2004. Judson attended The Julliard School Summer Dance Intensive in 2007 where he studied with Andra Corvino, Alexandra Wells and Alexander Proia. In the summer of 2008 he attended the Chautauqua Summer Dance Institute where he was awarded the Chautauqua Dance Circle Scholarship. In 2009 he received a full scholarship to the summer and year round programs at the School of American Ballet studying under Peter Martins, Jock Soto, Andrej Kramarevsky, Sean Lavery, Johnathan Stafford and Peter Frame.
