Evan is a Broadway dancer from Bloomfield, Michigan. He had auditioned with his brother Ryan and they both made it through Vegas, but Evan was eventually chosen over his brother to compete in the top 20. It has been shown that his brother auditioned for season six and got another ticket to Vegas. He is partnered with Jazz/Contemporary dancer Randi Evans. In 2009, Evan starred in a short film called "After Hours" directed by Jason Eberly and written by Nathan Hartman.
Evan has been noted as being the most "picked-on" by the judges, yet remained the only dancer to have never been voted into the bottom by America. He finished the competition in third place.
Evan originated and is currently playing the role of Elmer in the musical Newsies, which premiered at the Paper Mill Playhouse in November 2011 and opened on Broadway in March 2012.
