Raised in sunny California, Stephanie danced her way to Philadelphia, receiving a BFA from University of the Arts in 2012. Stephanie is so excited to join BalletX’s Dance eXchange team! Through Dance eXchange, Stephanie enriches the community using world renowned teaching pedagogy from NDI (National Dance Institute). Stephanie utilizes her diverse teaching experience to instruct creative movement and early development at Mi Casita Preschool, ages 2-5 years. Some performance highlights include the critically acclaimed Off Broadway production of 8 Million Protagonists, and The Gallery at Boston Dance Complex. Stephanie looks forward to performing again with local Modern/African-based dance company Danse4Nia Repertory Ensemble’s full-length Concert on April 21, 2018. When Stephanie is not teaching through the Philly school district, you can find her teaching at Philly Yoga Factor, Philly’s first all donation-based Yoga nonprofit. Stephanie continues to thrive and express her gratitude for life by sharing her knowledge and love of movement daily!
