Steven Johnson- Son, Dog Dad, Teacher. Steven discovered his passion for performing late in life. He is in his 14th year of teaching various styles of dance. When he is not at the studio, you can see him awkwardly gracing the stage around central Florida in various locations, sometimes with drag queens. Steven has been in many shows in the Central Florida area, but does not want to bore you with the details. Steven is always on the look out for a new opportunity or challenge and not afraid to embarrass himself to entertain others.
