The "Wiz" (Stephanie) teaches GROOVE to adults, adolescents and children. (When she's not GROOVE-ing she's finishing up her PhD in Sociology and doing research with at-risk youth.) GROOVE is a super simple dance floor experience that enhances creativity, self-esteem and connection. The Wiz is a one-of-a-kind, bright spark who uses her compassion, humour and advanced teaching and facilitation skills to ensure everyone on the dance floor has a mind blowing experience!

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

Stephanie offers the GROOVE dance floor experience to children and adolescents. The GROOVE is usually comprised of an hour-long dance floor experience. As a facilitator, she will explain the GROOVE principles to the participants prior to the experience. The dance floor experience involves all genres of music and styles of dance. Participants will unite in the movements, and then she will coach and cue them to go deeper into the movements and to connect with their fellow dance floor peers. The GROOVE philosophy stipulates that, "You can't get it wrong!" - Everyone is successful at GROOVE. She will conclude the experience with a short question-and-answer style discussion about self-esteem, self-expression, confidence and important 'takeaways' from the GROOVE philosophy.
