There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good.

Great teacher! Very patient. Knows her stuff and works at a pace that is comfortable. Speeds it up when she knows we have it. Couldn't ask for a better teacher!

I had never danced before,. My daughter is getting married and wants to dance at the reception with her dad. Stephanie made time for me at the last minute. She really helped to make me comfortable and much more confident than I ever thought possible. Ready to make my daughter's special day even better. I can't thank Stephanie enough. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.

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!

Stephanie is a well rounded, energetic and kind dance teacher that can work with anyone - trust me, I was really bad at dancing before I started. Through our lessons she has taught me not only how to dance various styles (salsa, hip-hop, modern, ballroom and hopefully many more to come!) but she has also taught me how to transition that knowledge into my everyday life.

I can't say enough about Stephanie and how amazing she is as a teacher and person. Whether your brand new to dance and trying to learn a few moves or your an experienced dancer, Steph can help you expand your dancing skills.
