Stephanie Stevenson aka "The Princess of Salsa"
Even as a toddler, Stephanie was dancing in her crib, but really got the ‘dance bug’ at age 11. Quickly moving up the ranks, she was clearly becoming a stand-out in the salsa world. But at the age of 19, Stephanie was struck by a drunk driver and left in a coma for two weeks. She was told that she wouldn’t dance again. That wasn’t acceptable to her – she fought through the pain and later won her first Women’s title as the Salsa Champion in Los Angeles.
Stephanie had her first child, Jade, on Christmas day in 2015. Dance was able to get her through severe postpartum depression and four months after giving birth, she won her next LA Women’s Solo Competition and became an inspiration to all moms around the world.
During her next pregnancy, she entered another competition and became known as the ‘Pregnant Salsa Dancer.’ Stephanie also won that competition, which was covered by several news outlets and went viral in 2 days, gaining over 40 million views.
After many years of successes, including the welcoming of her second child, Rocky, Stephanie is proud to be bringing the highest-energy Latin dance classes to Los Angeles, all taught in her own studio within North Hollywood. Her new clothing line, called “Salsera” (which is a term she coined for women who are strong, smart, sexy, and an all-around bad ass), can now be found at the studio as well as through the online store.
You can find Stephanie now working on numerous projects, continuing to inspire, motivate, and shape women all over the world.
