An AEA singer, dancer, and actor, Adam is unique in that his love of performing arts extends out of the spotlight. A well-rounded artist, he spent countless hours working in live sound, lighting design, and performing arts management for several performing arts venues and organizations during his university days. Nevertheless, performing is Adam's ultimate joy. Today, he strives to share that passion with audiences of NYC and beyond!
Adam owes everything to his family. As his grandmother tells it, Adam has been performing since he was small enough to make the fireplace hearth his stage! He and his cousins wrote, produced, and choreographed original musical revues for the parents each Christmas. For 30 years, the Shaffs' Dance Studio trained thousands of young artists in his hometown, Columbus, Indiana. At age 4, Adam got his first pair of taps and his feet have yet to stop moving!
As a teenager, Adam began to seriously explore his passion for the stage. That exploration led him to Indiana University and a degree in Arts Management. As a Hoosier, Adam expanded his training as a singer, dancer, and actor. He gained valuable experience as a soloist and choreographer with The Singing Hoosiers. Adam also appeared in three productions for IU's Department of Theatre and Drama as well as four World Premiere musicals and dance pieces.
