Stephanie entered into performing arts at the age of nine. Growing up, she worked professionally on-stage at QPAC in numerous productions with her most favoured role including the head female orphan in ‘An inspector calls’ by JB Priestley and directed by Stephen Daldry.
Stephanie loved performing but her passion lay with teaching. From the age of fifteen, Stephanie undertook many roles at various dance schools teaching ballet, tap, jazz, hip hip, speech and drama, cheer and acrobatics. She also thrived when teaching solo intensives and choreographing for eisteddfod competitions.
After completing her Bachelor of Education and graduating with honours, Stephanie worked in an educational setting. During this time, Stephanie also ventured through Europe and Australia. She completed professional development courses and workshops with celebrity choreographers including: Jason Coleman, Mia Michaels, Travis Wall, Matt Lee, Blake John Wood and Matthew Prescott.
With several years of experience and qualifications, Stephanie was ready to fulfil her dreams and started a dance school and thus Achieve was created!
