He also choreographed a tap and tango piece for a Paula Abdul Benefit Concert VIP after-party. He has taught ballet as well as other forms of dance including contemporary, hip hop, and ballroom.
This will be Stiller’s first season with Oklahoma City Ballet, and he is excited to be a part of such a wonderful company. He cannot wait to perform!
