While in Oklahoma, Steve has performed in the Oklahoma Centennial Parade and the Oklahoma Centennial Spectacular along with Reba, Carrie Underwood, The Flaming Lips, and All American Rejects. He was member of the professional dance company at OCU, The American Spirit Dance Company and was elected the Deputy of the company, which allowed him to work closely with the director and company manager while he served as a liaison between the dancers and the director and company manager. He has starred in shows at OCU such as, Life of the Party, Home for the Holidays, The American Spirit Spring Show, and, as a freshman, was selected to be a part of the American Spirit Tour Cast.

Steve choreographed Kankakee Valley Association Theatre’s production of The Wedding Singer which was raved about in the Kankakee press. Steve’s choreography has appeared on CBS, FOX, ABC & NBC for the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade, received numerous choreography/entertainment awards, and several students hold national titles with Steve’s choreography.

Standout Dancers 2019

Standout Dancers are dancers that impressed the judges at one of our regional competitions. They will be invited to perform a production number at one of our two National locations. They will be taught a production routine at Nationals that will open up our afternoon at the Grand Nationals held on the last day of each National competition. A special note will be made of their names and the studio they represent!

We will start to post videos right here on the Standout dancers tab. You must do your best to learn the choreography posted online. Look for the videos to start coming out the first week in May.

We will then post a schedule two weeks before each Nationals were the Choreographer will work with select age groups. Rehearsals will work around competition schedules and be flexible. Then on the night before Grand Nationals there will be a three hour staging rehearsal onstage.
