Stephen’s technique classes move from swing, fall and recover fundamentals to ballet placement exercises to yoga-inspired strengthening practices to combinations exploring his own lyrical and idiosyncratic movement style. Movement dynamics, musicality and a passionate use of space are essential qualities of Stephen’s classes as are his insistence upon using humor as a means of breaking through our inhibitions, unifying the group and finding new dimensions in our dancing.
Stephen trained at New York at Purchase College and Connecticut College after which he danced and taught with numerous companies in Boston and San Francisco. In addition to working for his own company, Stephen has danced and choreographed with Boston Community Dance Project, Susan Rose’s Danceworks and Della Davidson. He currently teaches at Central School Of Ballet and gives company classes for New Adventures, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance and Yorke Dance Project for which he is currently associate director
