Peter Sabasino

Professional Dancer - Tap

Peter Sabasino, a native of Philadelphia, PA, began his dance training at the age of four at a local dance studio. It was there that he started to learn Ballet, Jazz, Hip-Hop and Tap but found that Tap and Hip-Hop were his home. At the age of fourteen, he was accepted into the High School for Creative And Performing Arts as a dance major. It was there he expanded his repertoire by adding Modern, African, Ballroom, and Broadway to his belt. It was here in high-school that he discovered his third love… Broadway Jazz. At the start of his senior year, Peter began traveling back and forth between Philadelphia and New York to study at Broadway Dance Center, and Steps On Broadway where he had the opportunity to train under greats such as Gregory Hines, Savion Glover, Barbara Duffy, Tyce Diorio, Rhapsody James, and Brian Green, to name a few. After graduating high-school, Peter continued his training at Indiana University of PA where he studied with Joan Van Dyke, the head of the Ballet program at the Governor’s School of the Arts. After college Peter was blessed with what he considers his BIGGEST achievement and landed a spot as a Top 16 Finalist on Fox Television’s hit reality show, “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 6. He was the last of three Tap dancers to be eliminated and the only Tap dancer in the show’s history, so far, to make it as far as the top 16. It was there that Peter believes his views and philosophies of dance were molded by the many amazing choreographers and dancers he was blessed to work with. Peter also recently landed a spot as a principal dancer in a commercial for Walt Disney World. Peter now travels the world, teaching, choreographing and performing but finds his TRUE LOVE is in teaching, inspiring, and instilling the knowledge he has gained throughout his career with the up and coming dancers of tomorrow.

Dance Convention Teachers

All faculty teachers are scheduled to attend all locations, and to teach in all three levels. While all our teachers plan to be at each and every location, occasionally other professional obligations arise and a faculty member or two cannot attend. Excel works with many unbelievable teachers and will replace anyone absent with an equally qualified teacher. Our confirmed faculty for each city will be posted (with the schedule) one week in advance.
