Early years: Stephen Galloway began dancing in his living room with his Aunt Melba to Soul Train and Prince. He was formally introduced to dance at age ten when a production at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Center in his hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania needed boys strong enough to lift the female dancers.
Galloway began his ballet training at 13 in a small school in his hometown. A few years later at 17 he left the United States and travelled to Germany to audition for Ballet Frankfurt with a grant from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts. It was at Ballet Frankfurt that he met WILLIAM FORSYTHE, the company’s new director who mused that the young dancer “should be in college studying” but still hired him. Galloway quickly rose to become a principal dancer within a few years.
