Stephen Reed has appeared in six different Tony Award winning Broadway musicals including Once upon Mattress (starring Sarah Jessica Parker & Jane Krakowski), How to Succeed in Business (starring Matthew Broderick), Crazy For You, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, 110 in the Shade, and Cats (as the wild rock-n- roller Rum-Tug-Tugger). He has traveled America, Europe, and Japan in Broadway touring productions of shows like Ragtime, Crazy For You, 42nd Street, A Chorus Line, Evita, Annie Get Your Gun, and the Kiss Me Kate. He has danced in rock videos for recording artists Prince, Gloria Estefan, Peter Frampton, and Steve Winwood, and was dance supervisor for Liza Minnelli in her Broadway touring production of Minnelli On Minnelli. Stephen has performed as a concert repertory dancer with Gus Giordano’s Jazz Dance Chicago, as a demi-soloist with the Milwaukee Ballet. Among other filmed performances, he can be seen tap dancing and tumbling on a tin- roof shed in PBS Great Performance Presents: Crazy For You!

In addition to his performing, directing, and choreographing, Stephen was resident- choreographer and guest- Director for Tri-Arts Theater in upstate New York and recently served as Assistant Choreographer for The New York Philharmonic "PBS Presents" Candide! (starring Patty Lupone & Kristin Chenoweth) and Hello Dolly at the 5th Avenue Theater in Seattle Washington.

Most significantly, it's Stephen’s direct work with choreographic Broadway legends such as Jerome Robbins, Susan Stroman, Gillian Lyne, Wayne Cillento, and Kathleen Marshall that brings a wealth of professional knowledge and history to his class teachings. Coupled with his work as an SSDC director and choreographer, he gives students invaluable insight into the grueling audition process and strenuous requirements of being a professional dancer in the American Musical Theatre scene.
