Stiefel has appeared as a guest artist with many companies throughout his career including the Mariinsky Ballet, the Royal Ballet, the Australian Ballet, Zurich Ballet, Munich Ballet, Hamburg Ballet, National Ballet of Canada, New National Ballet in Tokyo, and Teatro Colón Ballet in Buenos Aires.
He gave his final performance as an ABT principal dancer on July 7, 2012, at the Metropolitan Opera House, as Ali the slave in Le Corsaire.
His first ballet teacher, Jo Jean Retrum, was interested in getting Ethan to take class because boys in ballet are a rarity.
He studied for two years at the Milwaukee Ballet School under Ted Kivitt and Paul Sutherland, and at the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet before moving to New York City to attend the School of American Ballet on scholarship.
He was a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre (ABT) from 1997 till July 2012.
Stiefel began ballet training in Madison, Wisconsin at the Monona Academy of Dance at age eight.
He won a silver medal at the Prix de Lausanne in 1989 and also received a Princess Grace Foundation-USA grant in 1991.
In 1998, Stiefel was nominated for the Benois de la Danse award as one of the rising stars in ballet.
Before that, both he and his sister took gymnastics classes.While there, Stanley Williams enrolled him in the company's men's special class where he trained alongside Rudolf Nureyev, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Fernando Bujones.He studied with Baryshnikov himself at the short lived Mikhail Baryshnikov's School of Classical Ballet.The movie’s rallying cry, “Dance the shit out of it! It wasn’t a good movie—David Denby called it “bizarely infantile,” “a thirties musical without good jokes,” and “a semi-fiasco”—but despite its flaws, I instantly knew that the film would be with me for life. In “Giselle,” he danced Prince Albrecht, the sly seducer who breaks a young girl’s heart.Giselle’s heart is weak, so when she learns that Albrecht is already engaged to another, she dies. It wasn’t until I saw Stiefel in “Sleeping Beauty” that I realized how fully I had grafted the Cooper Nielson’s bad-boy persona onto him. He doesn’t think, I might be hallucinating, or, Yeah, she’s really pretty, but there’s this whole evil-sorceress thing. But watching Stiefel as Prince Désiré, I kept questioning his commitment to the endeavor. principal Gillian Murphy, and I started to believe that Cooper Nielson was settling down.In March 2014, Stiefel announced that he would not extend his contract with the Royal New Zealand Ballet and would return to the United States.In 2000, he starred in the film Center Stage, directed by Nicholas Hytner with original choreography by Susan Stroman and featuring Amanda Schull.He started his dancing career in 1989, when he joined the corps de ballet of New York City Ballet at age 16.In 1992, he took a leave of absence to perform with the Zürich Ballet, under directorship of Bernd R.Her ghost retreats to the forest to join the Wilis, jilted women seeking revenge on men. In that ballet, the prince is a bland, noble savior. So he finds Princess Aurora, but what if in real life she doesn’t match her Vision Dating profile photo? With Cooper Nielson on the case, I wasn’t quite sure; my “Center Stage” absorption had reached a critical mass. Luckily, in the ten-plus since years since the movie came out, I’ve slowly learned to separate Stiefel from his onscreen persona. Now and then I would come across stories that made me think, Oh, that’s so Cooper—like when he became the artistic director of Ballet Pacifica and then quit when he couldn’t get along with the board. On July 7th, he will retire from the company that has been his home for fifteen years.I never got the whole thing when I was a kid, but that night, when I watched Amanda Mc Kerrow as Giselle learn the truth about man she loved, I thought, Oh, that’s just like what Cooper Nielson did to Jody! I saw more ballets in which he carried out his princely duties reliably and with aplomb, and I began to forgive him. His last time on that stage will be in “Le Corsaire,” a spirited but silly ballet full of pirates, pashas, and slave girls.
