After completing college, Winterton toured with the Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, and participated in residencies in association with the National Endowment for the Arts' Artists-in-Schools Program.

As a professor in the Dance Department at Brigham Young University, Winterton worked closely with the The Dancers' Company, Lamanite Generation, the Young Ambassadors' touring group, and musical theater productions. He also served as the artistic director for revues at Sundance, Utah for several years. He and his wife, Maureen, were the parents of four sons, Brad, Greg, Rolph, and Jay Dee.
