    Stephen Pier has been a trusted company teacher for Company Wayne McGregor, Random Dance, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Alvin Ailey, Introdans, Scapino Ballet, and many others. His approach to teaching Ballet as a way of developing the human expressive movement potential is informed through his work with many of today’s leading choreographers as well as his unique experience in both classical ballet and modern dance. His studies at The Juilliard School and other studios in NYC lead him to careers with the Royal Danish Ballet, the Hamburg Ballet, and the José Limón Company as well as collaborating as a guest artist with several contemporary companies in NYC, Europe, and Japan. Stephen’s creative engagement led him to choreograph works for the Hamburg Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, New National Theater (Japan), Alvin Ailey School, Atlanta Ballet School, Juilliard Dance Ensemble, SUNY-Purchase, and many theater and opera productions around the world. He directed American Ballet Theater’s innovative Voices and Visions/Women Choreographers initiative. Stephen was a master teacher on the faculty of the Juilliard School for 14 years and is currently the artistic director of the Hartt School Dance Division at the University of Hartford while maintaining an international guest teaching schedule.
