STEPHANIE HUGHES, OWNER

Hello! My name is Stephanie, and dance is not just a hobby of mine; it’s a way of life! Training dancers is my passion. I strive to make these girls and boys better than their own expectations. Choreographing the most unique routines is my purpose in this field. I’m a strong Christian believer, and I’m blessed with the most amazing family, my husband Robert, and our four beautiful children, Hayden, Isabella, Madelyn, and Luke.  I entered the dance world at age three and was completely hooked on day one. I started competing with a local studio when I was in 3rd grade. In high school, I joined the competitive dance/drill team and quickly became the captain for sophomore, junior, and senior years. I have taught dance at several local studios and have taught competitive cheer at two local schools. In 2006, I choreographed and trained Miss Ohio Teen USA as she made her way to the Miss Teen USA finals, where she took 3rd runner up! Opening my own dance studio was always a dream and goal in life! Having started my own competitive teams has been my dream come true! The teams have proven themselves to be very successful, having won many awards for choreography, costumes, music, and pure talent!!
