Reid began training with Philip Fuller in Los Angeles at the age of 8. As a student at the Idyllwild Arts Academy, he attended summer sessions on scholarship with ABT, San Francisco Ballet and the Royal Ballet. He received a scholarship to the post secondary program of Canada’s National Ballet School, where he studied with Lindsay Fischer and had a brand new work choreographed on him by James Kudelka. Reid represented NBS in an international showcase, dancing the late Rudi van Danzig’s "Third Song" at the Stuttgart Ballet.
Upon graduating from the post secondary dance program, Reid joined Ballet West and performed ballets such as "Giselle", "Sleeping Beauty" and Balanchine’s "Stars and Stripes". In 2008, Reid joined The Orlando Ballet and danced roles in Fernando Bujones’ "Don Quixote", and Robert Hill’s "Le Corsaire".
