Ballet, Tap, Jazz

Jeff started dancing at a local Long Island dance studio in 1982 at the age of seven, when he learned tap, jazz, ballet, and musical theatre.

Jeff studied ballet, jazz, and modern with a focus on partnering and choreography at SUNY Stony Brook, graduating in 1996.

Jeff started teaching in 1997 In addition to the foundations and technique of ballet, I love teaching pointe, tap, lyrical, jazz, and musical theatre. I teach all ages and levels of experience.

Jeff has performed all styles professionally, performing with the Long Island Ballet Theatre, The Grey Wig Theater Company, the Bay Way, and Broadhollow Theatres. Jeff has toured internationally (he loved exploring the Latin American culture) with the renowned ballroom/latin/musical theatre company, Odyssey Productions.

Jeff’s favorite ballet is “Romeo and Juliet” and favorite musical is “42nd Street”. He is a fanatic for all things “Fosse”.
