Brian Stevens grew up in the Dallas Fort Worth area where he received his training from top instructors including Gayle Corkery, Justin Giles and Dana Bailey. He furthered his education on scholarship at the Broadway Dance Center in NYC and The Edge Performing Arts Center in LA. Throughout his training Brian assisted for Tremaine and Dupree Dance Conventions across the country. Assisting faculty members of these nationally recognized dance conventions allowed Brian to have a hands on experience in teaching other dancers movement and technique. The assistant opportunity also helped him to further create his unique choreography style in contemporary and jazz.
Brian is currently the Artistic Director of Wanderlust Dance Project, named as one of “Theater Jones Top Ten Dance Performances of 2016”. Wanderlust Dance Project is “the first and only Non-Profit 501(c)(3) of it’s kind, where pre-professionals learn and rehearse from some of the dance industry’s top choreographers, while dancing alongside working professional dancers”. Brian is also the Artistic Director of KJ Dance’s pre-professional dance company, Pulse. Under his direction the company has been nationally recognized as New York City Dance Alliance’s Outstanding Studio. His choreography for large and small groups, solos, duets, and trios have won multiple high scores in the country. Under his mentorship Brian has had individual nationally recognized dancers as well. Brian tours the country with the Dupree Dance Convention faculty as a choreographer and instructor. He is the founder and designer of the internationally recognized costume company, Artistic Dance Designs, which launched in 2013.
