Simone Stevens, an Atlanta native, earned her BA in Dance and Minor in Anthropology from Kennesaw State University in July 2017. One year post-grad, Stevens moved to Chicago and trained on scholarship at the Lou Conte Dance Studio where she was mentored by Laura Wade, Ethan Kirschbaum, and Kristina Fluty. During that time, Stevens also freelanced throughout the city and performed works choreographed by Alice Klock, Alysia Johnson, Hanna Brictson, LOUD Bodies, and Joshua Peugh, among others. Most recently she performed as a company member with Katlin Bourgeois's Ensemble180 and Wilfredo Rivera’s Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre. Stevens is excitedly looking ahead to what this next season will bring.
