Overview

I graduated from the University of the Arts with a BFA in dance in 2012, there I found my love for teaching and I have been doing so ever since. My classes aim to inspire my students to grow beyond their own expectations. I truly believe that dance and art can shape and enrich the lives of the community, and bring people of all backgrounds together.

The past couple years I taught Ballroom to students ages 4- adult. If you are looking for a first dance for your wedding, with an experienced teacher who will come to you- look no further! I am also well versed in many styles of movement including ballet, tap, jazz, modern, ballroom and hip hop. I would love to help you enrich life through dance! I appreciate your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

I've always considered myself to have very little rhythm and dancing was always uncomfortable for me, but I still wanted to impress my girlfriend with a few dance moves for an upcoming wedding. Stephanie was very welcoming in her home with a small 3rd floor dance studio with skyline views; she was encouraging, patient and professional. After four one hour lessons, I was able to pick up a few simple dance moves that has given me more confidence to hit the floor. Thanks Stephanie!

Stephanie provided clear instruction and guidance. She kept it simple since it was my first dance lesson ever. It was fun. The goals she set out for me were challenging enough to require my focus but within reach that I could see some improvement even in one lesson. I look forward to going back for the rest of my lessons.

I've had my first lesson, and Stephanie is great! Just what I'd hoped for, a real teacher patient w a beginner. It was a lot of fun.

No matter your skill level, Stephanie makes any goal feel achievable within a reasonable period of time. Each lesson is filled with an abundant amount of energy. Additionally, she has a natural talent of breaking down complex moves into easy-to-follow steps.

Stephanie's positive energy is contagious. Her talents extend her techniques and dancing abilities. I was not a confident dancer but her patience and feedback made me very comfortable in learning new forms of dance and self-expression. She's great with my 3 little girls as well, which is a feat in itself! We all look forward to our dance lessons with her every week.

If you are enthusiastic about life and looking for a teacher who is too, Stephanie is your girl! When I started taking dance lessons from Steph I was pretty self conscious about my moves and she made me feel super comfortable with her positive attitude. Her energy is thriving with wonderful vibes and she taught me how to let loose and feel the music. I am now very comfortable doing interpretive dance thanks to her, and am passing along what she has taught to me!
