Miss Stephanie Dainard
BFA Honors in Dance
Stephanie began her dance career at a young age, training and dancing competitively in acro, jazz, ballet, lyrical, and musical theatre. She continued to expand her skills and knowledge as a dance major at Cawthra Park S.S.’s Regional Arts Program and finished her formal dance education with the completion of her Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours Degree in Dance at York University with a focus in pedagogy and dance science. As a dancer plagued with injuries throughout her performing years, Stephanie has a strong focus on proper technique and safety in all of her classes. She strongly believes in educating the next generation of dancers to take proper care of their instruments (aka bodies).
Previously, Stephanie has worked as Studio Director of a performing arts academy that is home to many of today’s young entertainers. From YouTube sensations to YTV series regulars, Stephanie’s triple threat approach to dance training and young artist development has served her students well.
From the youngest baby ballerina to the strongest elite level dancer, Stephanie hopes to instill a love for the art and a passion for movement that they will carry with them forever.
