Cayel Tregeagle graduated from Brigham Young University in 2016 with a bachelor's degree in Music Dance Theatre at Brigham Young University. Along with Michelle Nielsen and Arianna Brunell, Cayel choreographed a contemporary dance number to the music of Jason Mraz' I Won't Give Up to portray the power of divine love for the Love Unbroken project. The project was filmed by professionals and students and was funded by the Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration in the Arts.

The dancers collaborated with students from the Theatre and Media Arts department and with professionals in that field to create the set and produce the visual effects seen on the film. The project was filmed at the Durham Brands warehouse and at the Salt Flats in Magna, Utah.

The film was produced, directed, and edited by Darin Southam, a local professional actor and director.

In 2012, Tregeagle was privileged to participate in the Songs of the Disinherited project, a choreographic residency funded by the Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration in the Arts. The project, directed by Dance faculty Pat Debenham, brought Donald McKayle, an internationally celebrated Modern Dance choreographer, to BYU to choreograph and produce Songs of the Disinherited. The dance, which is a reflection of the African diaspora, was later featured on PBS in a documentary about McKayle's life and work and was also performed at the Dance department's Dance in Concert 2012 and on the dance company's tour to India in August 2012.

Tregeagle is a part of BYU's Contemporary Dance Theatre group, and had the opportunity to perform in China in the fall of 2013 with the group. In 2015, he played the role of Albert in BYU's production, and the US premiere, of The Count of Monte Cristo.
