The first time Stephanie saw Mikhail Baryshnikov perform, she knew dance would be her passion in life. She devoted 15 years of her life to the rigorous study of ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, modern and broadway dance at some of the top schools in the state, winning over 200 first place trophies at local and national competitions. As a child, she also danced with the St. Louis Football Cardinal Cheerleaders for 4 years, and the St. Louis Steamers, ‘Steam Heat Dancers’ for 2 years. Not knowing about ballroom dance until her high school years, she fell in love with that art while watching a dance competition on TV. Within 6 months, Stephanie turned from student to teacher. She currently competes with and coaches students in both American and International styles of Ballroom and Latin dance. She has competed all over the country in the Professional Showdance/ Theatre Arts division placing 2nd, as well as the Professional American Smooth and Professional American Rhythm Division placing in the top 6
She is a beloved instructor who teaches Ballroom, Latin, East Coast Swing, Country and Western, West Coast Swing, and Wedding Dance. Stephanie has competed 4 seasons with the Dancing with the St. Louis Stars, winning the competition twice.
