BIO 2006:
I was the 2nd senior male DOTY ever, even before they used the acronym 'DOTY'. I have performed on Broadway, in Paris, Tokyo, Hamburg and many more wonderful places. My choreography credits include benefits for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, The Pediatric Aids Foundation, Kids Kicking, The Whos’ Tommy, South Pacific, Beehive, Smokey Joes Café, West Side Story, And the World Goes Round, and the national tour of Fame. World premieres include the Off-Broadway hit Bomb-itty of Errors; Crash Nation (Cherry County Playhouse), Manhattan Magic (Sands Resort in Atlantic City), A Holiday for Hope (Bushnell Theatre), The Rose of Corozon (Contemporary American Theatre Festival), My America (Kravis Center for the Performing Arts). I was recently selected as 1 of 6 choreographers chosen for the SDC Foundation’s DanceBreak. I am currently turning my focus to choreographing musicals and just finished work on the new Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin) musical Captain Louie at the York Theatre in New York City. I’ve also performed with the original cast of, and am now a vacation swing for, the 8 time Tony award winning Broadway hit, Hairspray at the Neil Simon Theatre. I also performed on Broadway in The Life, and performed in the Broadway National Tours of Movin Out and West Side Story. My teaching credits range from being on faculty at the Broadway Dance Center, Central Park Dance Academy and the Manhattan Dance Project, as well as a guest faculty member at James Madison University, Shenandoah University, and the University of California, Irvine, and teaching various other master classes and at universities and conventions all over the country. Oh yeah, just got married to a dancer in the touring and Broadway companies of 'Movin Out', Kristine Bendul now Kristine Bergasse.
