IVAN is in an elite group; at 25, he is one of the most sought-after pro Dancers working in Film, TV and on Stage, today. Unique for his stature as Lead Dancer, he is also a Choreographer; JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE hails him as his Co-Choreographer and Lead Dancer under Creative Director Marty Kudelka. In fact, TIMBERLAKE just requested IVAN come aboard to Lead Dance and Co-Choreograph his upcoming "20/20 Experience" World Tour! IVAN just Co-Choreographed JT's video for the record-breaking smash, "SUIT & TIE" (directed by DAVID FINCHER), Co-Choreographed Timberlake's newest videos, "TUNNEL VISION" and the acclaimed "MIRRORS", as well as JT's GRAMMYS 2013 return performance. IVAN just appeared alongside JT for his newest video for "TAKE BACK THE NIGHT", and oversaw JT's Release jam at the El Rey for the ReLaunch of MYSPACE. Currently, IVAN Lead Dances for USHER, CHRIS BROWN, and NE-YO (including hit videos "TURN UP THE MUSIC" & "FOREVER NOW" and several Award Show appearances). IVAN just Co-Choreographed the Season Premiere of "AMERICA'S GOT TALENT" for NICK CANNON (under Ray Leeper), and has just presented Choreography for the upcoming late-night sensation ARSENIO, as well as this season's "SO YOU THINK…". On-Camera IVAN stars as "The Icon" for the PEPSI "Who's Next?" campaign, and Leads in the new MICROSOFT and NIKE JORDANS campaigns.
IVAN is a 'First Lieutenant' to MARTY KUDELKA, who Choreographs for every major recording artist who dances, including: JANET JACKSON, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, BRITNEY SPEARS, and JENNIFER LOPEZ. Recently MARTY worked with JUSTIN BIEBER, THE BACKSTREET BOYS, and THE JACKSONS. IVAN just worked with pop sensation JACKSON GUTHY for RANDY JACKSON. http://vimeo.com/53492675
As a finalist on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE 7 years ago, IVAN was selected for their elite Celebrity World Tour, during which ELLEN DEGENERES 'kidnapped' IVAN to dub him 'her favorite' on her hit TV show. In fact, it was ELLEN who helped introduce him to TIMBERLAKE's camp... IVAN continues to Guest on ELLEN, appearing recently on her Birthday broadcast. https://vimeo.com/40187270
IVAN contributed and starred in the Disney Channel phenom, "MAKE YOUR MARK", which broke ratings records. After this success, MARK BURNETT developed a Network Dance series around IVAN's Hosting & Choreography, based on a concept IVAN created; several Networks have continued to approach IVAN to create a show centered on his Hosting & Dancing. http://vimeo.com/m/50188942
IVAN was invited to brainstorm a concept tying Sports to Dance + Music, incorporating The NFL. The pilot, SWAG SCHOOLIN', starring IVAN & NFL Pro Bowler RYAN MATHEWS, led to discussions with a few leading headphone company regarding sponsorship, and has since been spun off into an ongoing segment/series idea, potentially with ESPN. https://vimeo.com/46169418 (password : ivannfl)
IVAN's stature has led to another venture: Producing & Choreographing mo-cap for the biggest Video Game dance titles. IVAN created mo-cap / principal danced for: MICHAEL JACKSON The Experience, JUST DANCE, STEP UP: REVOLUTION, HAPPY FEET 2, and a confidential title for LucasArts.
He has successfully crossed over into Acting (he costarred in ROCK OF AGES opposite TOM CRUISE & MARY J. BLIGE), and just signed with OCTAGON and OSBRINK, for all On-Camera, Producing & Unscripted activity. IVAN is proud to be sponsored by NIKE for Celebrity Golf Tournaments.
