Stephanie began dancing at her local south Florida studio at the age of three, where she would sneakily slide out of her splits when her teacher wasn't looking. For the next fifteen years, she danced competitively in tap, jazz, ballet, and hip hop (and her flexibility improved just a little). For some crazy reason, Stephanie ditched the palm trees and beaches for mounds of snow at Tufts University for college. There, she was a dancer, choreographer, and publicist for the hip-hop and contemporary dance group, Spirit of Color, which performed to sold-out audiences every semester. When she's not dancing, Stephanie works for a children's book publishing company, getting books into school and library markets. Stephanie is so excited to be part of DanceWorks for Season 14 and is very grateful for this opportunity.
