Stephanie wandered into a salsa dance class in college, and has been hooked ever since. She was a part of Penn State’s Ballroom Dance Team, taught Salsa on1 and Bachata at her university for 3 years, and performed at half time shows for the football and basketball team. She also did performances with a hip hop group called RAM Squad, and fell in love with the unique way dance brought people with different thoughts, cultures, and perspectives together.
