During the course of the show, Cosculluela even went on a date with fellow 'Dance Moms' star Brooke Hyland who was 23 at the time. Cosculluela's Facebook profile shows that he hails from Miami, Florida, where he graduated from 'Dance Attack'. Later he also worked as an artiste with Tulsa Ballet in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

Before becoming a dance coach, Cosculluela apparently resided and worked in New York from 2018. He has added his stints as an actor at 'Mean Girls' and 'An American In Paris' on Broadway on his Facebook bio. He was also involved with the New York-based talent agency Lakey Wolff & Co. Cosculluela currently resides in Orlando, where he is a dance teacher at the studio, Peaches Dance and Music Orlando. In fact, he met both of his victims as students at this studio.

What are the charges?

The Orange County police arrested Cosculluela on multiple counts of sexual misconduct and "solicitation of a minor and of lewd and lascivious conduct".

In 2020, Cosculluela met his alleged victims at the studio where he coached and offered them private lessons. He started talking outside work with one of the girls and also started communicating with her on Snapchat. He then persuaded her to visit his apartment and perform oral sex on him twice. 

With the other girl, Kevin did not get physically sexual but solicited nude photos from her. On one occasion, Kevin even climbed on top of her on his bed while both of them were clothed.



 

Both underage girls stated that they were afraid of Cosculluela because of his anger and verbally abusive nature, which he showed whenever they refused his sexual demands or advances.
