Join us this Wellness Wednesday for a lyrical dance class with Evan Matthew Stewart, principal dancer at Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company!

Originally from Buffalo, NY, Evan began his dance training at age 10 in contemporary, tap, ballet and jazz. In 2016, he graduated from the University of Buffalo with his BFA in dance and minor in counseling. During his time at the University at Buffalo, he was a member of the Zodiaque Dance Company. Since moving to NYC, he has had the opportunity to work with Ebony Williams and perform for her at Jacob’s Pillow, and to dance in the film In the Heights. He is also an adjunct dance teacher at New Jersey City University and serves as a guest choreographer at various studios throughout the tri-state area.

In this virtual class for NJPAC, Evan will begin with a technique-driven warmup followed by a lyrical combination that will focus on musicality, grounded continuous movement, and utilizing the entire space of the room. His goal is to create an atmosphere where everyone can immerse themselves in the movement and express themselves freely. Don’t miss your opportunity to move with Evan on January 5 at 7:30PM.
