After high school, she moved from a small town in northern Vermont where she lived with her parents, to the greater Boston area to study business management in order to understand how to market herself and her dance talent. She continues to share her passion of dance with all ages by teaching at studios, summer camps, coaching high school and college teams, teaching workshops, and leading dance fitness classes. Stephanie strives to help her students reach their full potential as performers, encouraging them to reach new heights by fully expressing their emotions through dance and paying attention to the finest details of the musicality of her choreography.

Her studio competitive teams received all “Platinum Awards”, the highest honor, at traveling national competitions. She has choreographed and danced in music videos, starred as a Britney Spears impersonator, and competed in herself and then also trained a team to compete at Hip Hop International in Las Vegas! This past year was her fifth year teaching in Plattsburgh, NY and her hip hop teams made a splash at competition again bringing home top awards and being the crowd's favorite! Whether it is teaching, performing or taking a class she will jump at any opportunity to learn, grow, and perform with others who she can connect with through dance. Her passion for dance is evident!
