Mr. Riseling left to dance with a number of other companies, among them that of Jennifer Muller. During this time, he worked with Judith Jamison, assisting her in choreographing and staging her works until she formed her own company, The Jamison Project, in 1998. There he held the position of Assistant Rehearsal Director to Ms. Jamison, as well as dancing lead roles in her repertoire. In September of 1990, he was awarded a 'Bessie' award. He has taught at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center, STEPS On Broadway, Danspace, Peridance, Ballet Hispanico and Ballet Academy East studios in New York City, the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, and as Adjunct Professor for the Universities of Adelphi and The New School for Social Research.
