Steph began dancing when she was 9 years old and has been in love with it ever since! In addition to dancing at her local studio in Spokane, Washington, where she studied jazz, hip hop, ballet, and tap, Steph was also a member of her high school dance team where she performed at various high school events and competitions. While earning her Bachelor of Science in Operations Research and Computer Analysis at the United States Coast Guard Academy, she was also a member of the only service academy dance team and color guard, and was a co-captain during her senior year.
In this capacity, she choreographed performances for sporting events, school rallies, and talent shows. Steph recently enjoyed the opportunity to positively impact young minds through dance as the Gotta Dance Summer Dance Camp Director. Steph greatly enjoys helping kids of all ages find joy and personal empowerment through dance. She looks forward to teaching in the styles of jazz, lyrical, hip hop fusion, tap/ballet, and creative movement during the upcoming dance season!
