My name is Stephanie, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2008 and have loved helping my students move and feel good about what they are learning. Quick facts: Born in Park Ridge, IL. where dance started with ballet classes at the age of five, and in high school ballet slippers became Drill Team / Flag Corp boots only later to add Israeli folk dancing to my repertoire in Israel. I started partner dancing in the Spring of 2000 and as of Dec. 2021 I joined the new Danznik Studios in NYC. I am currently available to teach lessons in NYC in person and online. My energetic personality and teaching style is creative and fun while targeting my students’ goals. I look forward to working with you soon! Mission Statement My specialty is having the ability to adapt to each student’s personality which allows the relationship of movement and body to blend seamlessly.

Stephanie is an absolute pleasure to learn from. She is kind and competent and will very quickly have you at a level where you can comfortably dance on your own. She is a genuinely nice person and takes the time to learn the way that you learn so that she can teach you in a manner best suited to the way you learn. I had so much fun in my first few lessons with Stephanie leading up to a trip where I wanted to be able to do some swing dancing with friends. On the first day I briefly outlined my objectives with her and over the next handful of lessons we achieved them all. I am so happy to I decided to move forward with Stephanie and look forward to being her student for a long time!
Stephanie is amazing. She is so sweet and patient and I highly recommend her and her class. She is very talented and knowledgeable for the advanced dancer and she also explains and demonstrates the dance steps in an easy to understand way for complete beginners like myself.
