Collaborative Pianist - Music Director - Conductor

Dean Balan

is what you get when you cross a collaborative pianist with Mr. Rogers' fashion sense.

Dean started playing piano for musicals when he was 13. Most recently, he was the Associate Conductor/Keyboard 2 for the National Tour of R&H’s Cinderella (Work Light Productions).

Back home in Las Vegas, Dean is the Music Director and Conductor for Vegas City Opera and a technique class pianist for UNLV Ballet and the Nevada Ballet Theatre.

Away from the piano, Dean is an ultimate frisbee enthusiast, relentless reader, and often seeks enlightenment (unsuccessfully) through a combination of chai tea and tai chi.
