He performed roles that included the Jester in Cinderella, the Cavalier in The Nutcracker, and the Prince in Swan Lake.
Stephen was awarded a scholarship to attend the Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles under the direction of Joe Malone. Upon his return from L.A. he brought Hip Hop to the Columbia County Ballet. Soon he was hosting sessions for hip hop dancers all over the city.
Stephen moved to Atlanta to perform with brands and artists including Coca Cola, Letoya Luckett, Dierks Bentley, Ginuwine, Ashlee Simpson, Cherish, and Sean Garrett. A big break came with a seven-year run with R&B artist, Lloyd. It was Lloyd who coined Stephen's new name...Stevo.
Stevo began dancing in movies such as Footloose (the remake) and Step Up 3D. He worked as a resident development and movement coach for Zone 4 Entertainment and Crown World Entertainment. His choreography earned numerous credits from artists and events. He founded ESP Entertainment, a music production and entertainment company, with young music producer...Jamie "J-New" Newman. They went on to achieve gold and platinum album credits with artists such as Jamie Foxx, Menudo, Nickelodeon, Cherish, Rick Ross, and Trey Songs.
Stevo moved to Los Angeles in 2011 and danced for Kelly Rowland, Mark Ballas, Becky G, and Jacob Latimore. He was cast in the Liongate's franchise film Step Up-All In to play the lead protagonist, Jasper Tarik. One of the highlights of his time spent in L.A. was dancing with Lindsey Stirling, which took him across the globe lifting her overhead while she played her amazing fiddle.
Stevo has traveled and performed throughout Europe, Africa, the Mideast, and the United States. Upon his return to Atlanta he began a new program housed within the studios of the Columbia County Ballet, the Stevo Jones Hip Hop Dance Academy.
The art of dance and the business of entertainment industry are for Stevo, an inheritance.
