After receiving a BA in political science, he pursued his Master of Fine Arts degree at Temple University where he served on the faculty upon graduating. Staib’s company credits include Ann Vachon/Dance Conduit, Coriolis Dance Company, and Paula Kellinger and Dancers. In addition, in 2006 Staib performed with the José Limón Dance Company as a guest artist in Missa Brevis. He was also invited to perform as a guest artist with the David Dorfman Dance Company in the spring of 2008. As a choreographer, Staib has been honored with awards and citations both nationally and internationally for his work, oncluding: the Prague Dance and Theatre Prize 2000 Czech Republic; and the Walkley Prize and the Weiss Prize for the Arts. His work has been extensively commissioned and has been produced in over 20 states. As a teacher, he served as a Guest Artist-in-Residence at Wilson College and the University of Nevada, and for four years was a choreographer for the Las Vegas Civic Ballet. Staib has an extensive background in music and has been recognized nationally for his choreographic and design contributions to high school band and colorguard programs, as well as the drum corps and winter guard activities, to which he still remains very devoted. He joined the Emory Dance Faculty in the fall of 2001 and teaches modern and ballet techniques, Introduction to Dance, Choreography, and Music for Dancers. In 2011, he traveled to Tel Aviv, Israel where he spent five weeks studying both Gaga technique with members of the Batsheva Dance Company and release technique with Iris Enez. He also led choreographic workshops and feedback sessions. His relationship with Israeli dance continues with the recent publication of his article in the online magazine “Dance in Israel” and the incorporation of Gaga technique in his summer workshop in Sorrento, Italy. Most recently, George was invited to Stockholm to teach at one of Sweden's top colleges, Södra Latin and to set work on SARACENO DANCE COMPANY, a Swedish contemporary company.
