Stephanie “Izzy” Madrid began dancing at 4 years old when she lived in Germany. The daughter of a military family, she also received dance training in Japan, Arizona, and Oklahoma. She has studied tap, jazz, ballet, musical theater, hip-hop, lyrical, and is certified to teach Zumba. Izzy has had the pleasure of working with many teachers and choreographers across the country, including Anton Smith, Frank Hatchett, and Andrea Holland.
While in Arizona, she was a part of a musical theater group that traveled around the southwest and performed for various cities every weekend. She was a competitive dancer in Oklahoma which left her a title winner of many awards, including Tremaine’s Studio Dancer of the Year. She has been teaching since she was 16, and is very glad to be a part of the Chrissy’s family.
