About Curtis

Hometown San Antonio, TX
Broadway Debut FOOTLOOSE (2000)
Professional Training “I am very lucky to have a mother who owns a dance studio. I started tap dancing when I was two years old and never stopped. I also attended an incredible high school, North East School of the Arts (San Antonio, Texas). Together, the two afforded me so many wonderful opportunities and invaluable connections. I moved to Los Angeles when I was 17, and my preparation met opportunity at the audition for FOOTLOOSE.”
Year Joined AEA 1999
How I Got My Equity Card “I basically crashed the invited call of FOOTLOOSE. They were having auditions in L.A., so I just showed up. I was lucky enough to be seen. The next week I found out I had an offer for the first national tour and I joined the union immediately.”
Broadway Chorus Credits 8
Fun Fact “I am a huge San Antonio Spurs fan. Playoffs are coming up and my girlfriend, Cortney Wolfson (AEA member), is an Indiana Pacers fan. We are hoping for Spurs vs. Pacers in the finals!”
