Stephanie Miele's career and passion for dance began at the age of 4 years old at a private dance school where she studied all forms of dance for many years which included ballet, tap, jazz, hiphop, modern, lyrical and contemporary. Throughout her high school and college career, her choreography, artistry and talent was showcased in numerous competitions. She received her BS in Psychology and her Master’s in Dance Education PreK-12 and Early Childhood Education from CUNY Hunter College. Stephanie continues to take dance classes regularly to further her dance education. Stephanie believes that teaching dance is like a figure eight because she gets to learn from her students while simultaneously learning from her own experience teaching. She strives to provide each of her students with insights that they will look back on and pull from as they continue to grow as a dancer and as a person.
