Stefanie.jpg

Ms. Stefanie

Stefanie grew up always in and out of all sorts of sports from karate to softball, to gymnastics, and at age 9 discovered her love for dance. She was very introverted and shy and never in a million years thought she'd ever join a competitive dance team. But, the Lord had different plans, and she began competitive dance when she was 10 years old and quickly broke out of her introverted shell and became a lover of jazz/acro and lyrical solos and hip hop group dances. She began assistant teaching preschool dance when she was 13 in between her competition practices and then began teaching all ages on her own when she was 16! She stopped studio dance when she was 15 and transitioned to competitive school dance then “retired" from dance when she was 17. She is now 21 and before moving out to CO she hopped back into the dance world and was taking master classes in Nashville and rediscovered the joy dance brings her! She  loves all types of dance, but her most favorite are lyrical and contemporary. She is so excited to share the joy she has in dance with each kiddo and can’t wait to meet each one of you!
