Hi, there! My name is Stephanie, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2008 and have loved helping my students move, feel good about what they are learning, and accomplishing their goals. Quick facts about me: Born in Park Ridge, IL. where dance started with ballet classes at the age of five, and in high school ballet slippers became Drill Team and Flag Corp boots only later to turn up the movement to a folk-dance style of dancing in Israel. Raised on a farm in GA, attended schools in Texas, Georgia & Israel; Served 2 years in the Israeli army, continued my education at the AADA in NY January 1993, started partner dancing Spring of 2000. I joined Ballroom Basix as of October 2020. I am a Teaching Artist with this amazing company which is dedicated to bringing etiquette and manners with "fun fitness and fancy footwork" while teaching them culture of the dances they learn. Find out more about what we do here! I am currently available to teach lessons in-person at your home, or rental studio. My energetic personality and teaching style is creative and fun while targeting my students’ goals. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! Mission Statement What sets me apart from all other dance instructors is that I have the ability to adapt to each student’s personality which allows the relationship of movement and body to blend seamlessly. It is all about the student!

Dance Well NY was established in 2008 when I started teaching Hustle & Swing in the spring after 8 years of training. Ballroom was added to my list of expertise with a teacher training program and tested in Medalist Exams of main figures. I LOVE teaching. My claim to success is teaching choreography to newer dancers and to wedding couples. Many wedding couples continue on with private lessons for fun. Dance keeps you young, fit and happy! My goal is to share that with students, teaching them how to move confidently while enjoying themselves on the dance floor.
