Lindsey Stevens, originally from rural Maine, most recently graduated from The University of the Arts, in Philadelphia, with a BFA in Dance Education with a concentration in Ballet. Lindsey has studied all genres and styles with top teachers including Christine Cox of Ballet X, Anastacia Babayeva of the Moscow Ballet, Kim Bears-Bailey of Philadanco, Zane Booker of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Netherlands Dance Theater and Scott Jovovich of the Broadway stage and Joffrey Ballet, among others.
Highlights of Lindsey’s performances include the full length musical “On Your Toes”, including “Slaughter on Tenth Avenue”, restaged classical ballet work “Classical Symphony”, and modern dance pioneer Pearl Primus’ solo “Strange Fruit”, as well as other original works while in Philadelphia including “In Memoriam…” choreographed by Tommy Waheed of Philadanco, where Lindsey was a featured performer.
In the summer of 2010, Lindsey had the privilege of working at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet summer intensive, where she also received training from Ashley Bouder of NYCB, Laslo Berdo formerly of Boston Ballet and Julie Diana of the Pennsylvania Ballet.
Since she was 6, Lindsey knew she wanted to be a dance teacher and spent the 2011-2012 season teaching at Addicted 2 Dance Company in Ambler, PA choreographing modern competition dances that received several awards and teaching musical theater jazz, contemporary and modern, as well as musical theater tap/jazz in New Jersey at Raise the Barre Dance Center. Lindsey has also returned to her alumni dance studio, Laurie’s School of Dance, in Maine to teach all genres. Lindsey’s favorite thing about teaching is seeing each student grow and enjoy themselves through movement.
