A wing and pop lover from Buffalo, Devan always knew she was meant to be a performer. From her first dance recital at the age of three she told her mom "I want to do this the rest of my life!" And that is exactly what she went on to do.
Devan graduated from Niagara University with a B.F.A. in Theatre Performance.
Devan recently returned to NYC after traveling with the international and national tours of Wizard of Oz! She has also been lucky enough to sail the Caribbiean with Disney Cruise Line, and tour the country with Sesame Street Live. Other favorite credits include Jan-Grease, Bebe Benzenheimer-A Chorus Line, Phyllis Dale-42nd Street, Texas-Cabaret, Piggie-Elephant and Piggie We're in a Play! Snoopy-Charlie Brown Christmas, Mary Poppins.
Over the years Devan has developed a passion for teaching and choreographing. A faculty member of the Young Dancer Program at The School at Steps in NYC Devan primarily works with children ages 10 and under. However she can be found teaching pop up classes to help other performers prepare for dance auditions around the city, as well as guest teaching around the country.
If it wasn't for her amazing teachers growing up Devan wouldn't be the performer or teacher she is today.
She hopes to instill that same love for the arts with her students.
