Bio

Kevin Stea has been one of the most well-known dancers in the industry over the past 20 years. He has been successful in areas as diverse as choreography, modeling, directing, acting and hosting, and worked with the world’s top musical artists, directors, photographers and designers.

Kevin attended the University of Southern California as a business major, film minor and honors student, and began dance training there and as a scholar at the Steven Peck dance studio. He quickly made friends with many street dancers and joined an African-American vernacular dance company. It was here that he learned a large variety of styles from jitterbug and tap to freestyle, popping and African. That versatility has made him one of the most accomplished dancers of his generation.

After only a year and a half of training, Kevin was hired to be the associate choreographer, dance captain and dancer on Madonna’s now-legendary Blonde Ambition World Tour, from which the movie “Madonna:Truth or Dare” was made, and the video for “Vogue”. He performed in Madonna’s unforgettable Edwardian appearance on the MTV Music Video Awards, and won Star Search with the Dance Grand Champions ‘New World’. Soon after, he was working with Gloria Estefan, Prince and as associate choreographer and dancer for Michael Jackson.

He began modeling for Jean Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, Tommy Hilfiger, Romeo Gigli, Fendi, Calvin Klein and Exte, and has worked many times over the years with famed photographer David Lachappelle, Herb Ritts and Peggy Sirota among many others.
After performing in movies like Sister Act 2, Showgirls, Newsies and The Birdcage, he toured Japan with famed Japanese artist Seiko Matsuda, as her dance partner and singer. He then moved to Italy and became very successful singing, dancing, acting and judging on the weekly variety show, Buona Domenica. He appeared often on Italian television, choreographed several series, and signed a recording deal. While recording he toured with Ricky Martin , promoting “La Vida Loca”.

Over the years that passed, Kevin appeared in more than 50 commercials, including 13 for the Gap and Old Navy, most famously in Khaki-a-go-go. He also appeared in 14 Pepsi commercials, along with such personalities as Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Beyonce and Britney Spears. More films and videos followed; Austin Powers:Goldmember, Charlie’s Angels and Rent, David Bowie, Elton John, Celine dion, Smashmouth, Matchbox 20, Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga and more work with Michael Jackson.

Recently, Kevin directed a show for singer Kelis, a benefit concert featuring JoJo and Blake Lewis, performed in the award-winning TV special Tony Bennett: An American Classic, with John Legend, among others, Scrubs, on the Emmy’s with Christina Aguilera for oscar-winner Rob Marshall, the Academy Awards with 3-5 Mafia, and the following year with Beyonce, and on the hit series Dirty Sexy Money. Watch for him in the upcoming movies “Bolden”, Julie Taymor's "The Tempest"and “Move”, and in David Lachapelle's new commercial campaign for Pepsi.
