Neil Haskell is a bona fide triple threat, who has mastered all levels of performance from singing, dancing and acting. He truly lives up to the title of all-star on Season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance.
Born as a performer, and with a passion for his craft, Neil's ride to success started with humble roots as a dancer. He first graced the stage, and started dancing at age five at the David DeMarie Dance Studio in Clarence, New York, and American Academy of Ballet in Williamsville, NY. He eventually earned the title of "Male Dancer of the Year" at the American Dance Awards in 2005.
Neil’s strength made him a strong athlete in not only dance, but sports like Volleyball and Gymnastics. In 2007, his powerful style and technique in a mix of ballet and jazz charmed America as a finalist in Season 3 of So You Think You Can Dance. SYTYCD became a springboard for his career, opening all doors of opportunity.
Neil took his talents to the stage, where he began performing in various productions including: Twyla Tharp's Broadway show The Times They Are A-Changin', with music by Bob Dylan, the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera's productions of Grease, 42nd Street, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Beauty & The Beast. Neil also had a major roll in MTV's musical, The American Mall. In Spring 2008, Haskell, along with former SYTYCD contestants Sabra Johnson and Danny Tidwell was featured in Movement Magazine's cover story to promote 'Keep it Real' the publication's awareness non for profit. In April 2008 he began performing the role of Luke in the Off-Broadway musical, Alter Boys. He also had the opportunity to film Grace, a pilot for ABC in 2011.
On film, Neil has danced in Going The Distance (New Line), and most recently in Rock of Ages (New Line). Neil recently starred on Broadway as Steven in Bring It On: The Musical. With so much accomplished already, Neil has an exciting career full of opportunity awaiting him. Casting Directors have been singing his praises in regards to the acting world.
