EVAN SWENSON

FRESNO, California

Evan has been dancing professionally for 15 yrs. At 17 years old, he began his career while attending the Houston Ballet Ben Stevenson Academy with a full scholarship. While there he was given opportunities to perform and work with the Houston Ballet. Evan then left Houston to join Atlanta Ballet for three seasons, before moving to New York. This is where he decided not to be in full-time companies and began to free lance. After one year Evan broke his foot in rehearsal, which made him stop dancing. He moved back to California in the fall of 2008, and started new endeavors. Shortly after he knew something was missing and started dancing again. Evan jumped right into the free lance scene of Southern California doing everything from concert, to commercial, to film and modeling. This is his fourth season working with Backhausdance.
