You believe in perfection and you encourage your students in the same fashion, even at short notice. No excuses allowed. I just had 10 days to prepare for the medal test on October 15th; having returned on October 4th. With your encouragement and impeccable teaching and commitment I was able to perform to my satisfaction, and best of all keep my cool under performance pressure. Many of the routines were new to me. You accepted no excuses; I do not give any to myself. I am happy to say that this was my best effort from the many competitions and performances with you. It was music to my ears to hear Lori Woods Gay’s encouraging comments. Couldn’t have achieved that status without you.

I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie Falciano for over a year. Stephanie is always respectful, professional and very pleasant to work with. As a colleague, I learned a lot from Stephanie's way of teaching, especially the way she was always able to put a smile on her student's face. She has a great personality and great teaching skills. I was also lucky enough to perform with Stephanie as a dance partner in showcases, where her dance ability and artistry was always met with overwhelming applause from the audience.

Stephanie Falciano has the rare quality of being a great teacher and a great dancer. She has been my dance hostess on "Touch Dancing" TV Show. Always being a knock out. Looking forward to do more shows.
For myself, I took up dancing to satisfy a social deficit so I would not be socially awkward at parties, weddings, etc… Quite frankly, I went in with the thought that yes, it was “kind of for sissies”.
As a former world class, All American, athlete who actively plays tennis and maintains fitness, I believed that it would be easy. After sustaining several significant injuries never even considered dancing would “help” my lets feel better balanced and pain free.
Initially, I took group classes. Although I got an overview, progress was slow, but hiding in the back of the classroom was good. I then realized if I was going to be good, I would need more individualized attention.
It was only when I started to take private lessons with Stephanie over the past year did a dramatic transformation occur, I became more comfortable, less “stiff”, and noted great improvement in my form.
Stephanie has been an absolute delight – always refreshing with a constant level of positive enthusiasm, high energy, unyielding encouragement and patience. She has made me look forward to dance lessons (something I initially dreaded and never thought possible).
Stephanie’s lessons encompass the simple to the complex. You can spend time stretching, to basics, which are always emphasized, to intricate sequences. She is demanding while still remaining rewarding, and is flexible to constructing the lesson to what you want. She sets a high bar for perfection. Most importantly lessons are fun, enjoyable and worthwhile.
Whether you are dancing for fitness, sport, social or serious, let Stephanie take you on that path to success, fun and fulfillment. Thank you for your time.
On Behalf of Fundacion Hispanoamericana, I wanted to thank you once again for providing your expertise and your time to last week’s gala! The event would not have been as great a success without your help and we really appreciate it.
