Stephen Reed Workshop
September 25 (Winnipeg), September 26 (Brandon)

Dance Manitoba presented Jazz and Musical Theatre Master Classes in Winnipeg and Brandon with New York City based dancer, choreographer, director and teacher Stephen Reed on Saturday, September 25 (WPG) and Sunday, September 26 (BDN). Classes were offered to the Junior (ages 9-13) and Senior (ages 14 and up) levels in Jazz and Musical Theatre.  Classes were 90 minutes in length, consisted of 75 minutes of active class and 15 minutes of Question & Answer with Mr. Reed.

Stephen Reed has appeared in six Broadway musicals including Once upon Mattress with Sarah Jessica Parker, How to Succeed in Business with Matthew Broderick, Crazy for You, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, 110 in the Shade, and Cats (as Rum-Tug-Tugger). He has traveled America, Europe, and Japan in touring productions such as Ragtime, Crazy For You, 42nd Street, A Chorus Line, Evita, Annie Get Your Gun, and the recent Broadway revival of Kiss Me Kate. Stephen has danced in music videos with recording artists Prince, Gloria Estefan and Peter Frampton and was dance supervisor for Liza Minnelli’s most recent tour Minnelli On Minnelli. As a concert dancer Stephen has performed with Gus Giordano’s Jazz Dance Chicago and the Milwaukee Ballet and can also be seen tapping away on PBS in Great Performance Presents: Crazy For You!   In addition to performing, Stephen has been resident choreographer and guest director for Tri-Arts Theater in upstate New York and directs and choreographs professional theatre around the United States. Most recently he was Assistant Choreographer for the New York Philharmonic’s televised production of Candide starring Patty Lupone and Kristin Chenoweth.  Currently he is working on the anticipated revival of Gershwin’s Of Thee I Sing opening September 12, 2004.

Most significantly, it is Stephen’s direct work with Broadway choreographers such as Jerome Robbins, Susan Stroman, Gillian Lyne, Wayne Cillento, and Kathleen Marshall that brings a wealth of professional knowledge and dance history to his teaching. Coupled with his current work in the industry as a director and choreographer, his experience gives his students invaluable insight into the audition process and working requirements of a professional dancer.  Stephen has been on the panel as Jazz and Musical Theatre dance teacher for the Boston Summer Dance Festival (formerly the Harvard Dance Festival) for four years, teaching alongside such greats as Lynne Simonson and Donald McKayle.  Here in Canada, Stephen acted as Adjudicator for the 2003 Moosejaw Dance Festival and Competition.
