Stephanie Marizano
InstructorLyrical, Company

Stephanie began dancing at the age of two at a small studio in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Through the earliest years of her dance education, Stephanie studied ballet, tap, and jazz. At the age of 13, she enrolled at the Rock School of the Pennsylvania ballet. It was there that she refined her ballet technique while also furthering her understanding of classic jazz and a form of tap called “hoofing”. Between training with the Pennsylvania ballet, Stephanie took summer intensives to expand her dance repertoire. While in nursing school at Drexel University, Stephanie took a course called “Choreography Composition” where she learned the art of choreography and dance improvisation. She has performed and choreographed for Move the Butte and performed in several fall productions with the CB Dance Collective, has taught and subbed classes as well as performed for the CB School of Dance, and has taken as many classes as possible with both entities, including lyrical, contemporary, ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary ballet, and African. Stephanie believes in the power of movement and creative self-expression as a form of healing and is thrilled for the opportunity to share her passion for dance with her beautiful community!
