She is the instructor for IU’s “Fundamentals of Movement and Creativity: Twyla Tharp” course. Stevens attended the Walnut Hill School of Performing Arts under the direction of Sydelle Gomberg and continued her training at the School of American Ballet. In 1982, she was chosen by George Balanchine to join the New York City Ballet. During the 10 years Stevens performed with NYCB, she danced in the TV programs “Live from Lincoln Center with NYCB” and “Dance in America.” In 1991, Stevens joined Twyla Tharp Dance, where she performed for five years. With Tharp’s company, she performed repertoire works as well as new works as a principal. She was asked to dance in the Cutting Up tour with Tharp and Mikhail Baryshnikov, and her film credits include I'll Do Anything and In the Upper Room, both choreographed by Tharp.
