Stephanie's Bio for Event Directors
Event Directors ~ Please feel free to copy this bio for your website when I am on staff at your event.
Stephanie Risser Loveira began studying dance at an early age, starting with Ballet and moving on to Modern, Jazz, and Tap. After earning a BFA in Dance Pedagogy at the University of Hartford/School of the Hartford Ballet, she taught in Pennsylvania and Connecticut while beginning to experiment with partner dancing. After a few years, Stephanie moved to Philadelphia to direct a ballet program and began teaching Ballroom and Latin. After a brief time competing in International Latin, Stephanie began competing professionally in Hustle. After winning many Hustle championships and becoming one of the premiere Hustle dancers, she started competing in West Coast Swing as well. In only a few years Stephanie has reached the All-Star WSDC points level, and begun to work her way up in the West Coast Swing community. As well as being an independent instructor based in Philadelphia, Stephanie also travels the country competing and teaching both Hustle and West Coast Swing. Her versatility has created a great knowledge base and a special style that she is happy to share with anyone willing to learn! Stephanie continues to expand her reach by starting a Cabaret team, Stephanie and the BBs, as well as joining forces with Angela McCabe to create Sparklage Productions. Together they have produced an all girls WCS/Hustle formation team, Divalicious, as well as hosting multiple events in the Philadelphia area, including Swustlicious: The Ultimate Crossover Social.
