Stephanie's passion for movement and body mechanics led her to accomplishing a graduate degree in dance studies, choreography and aesthetics from the University of London, Laban Centre as well as a Masters of Fine Arts in Dance from the California Institute of the Arts.  She has performed and taught internationally for the past twelve years.

Stephanie's goal for Pacific Movement Center is to create a unique and innovative educational movement facility for individuals who have a desire to learn more about their own bodies while helping others.  This holds true if you are a private client, or studying to become a movement trainer.
