Stephanie Yamamoto | Seattle, WA
Stephanie fell in love with partner dance in 2009 after discovering east coast swing and lindy hop. Since discovering fusion, her style has encompassed influences from balboa, west coast swing, blues, tango, and hip hop (among others), as both a lead and a follow.
In addition to her dance background, Stephanie brings with her experience organizing a local weekend event (Phoenix Fusion Experience) and the fusion house party scene in Phoenix, AZ. She enjoys traveling to explore new dance scenes and volunteering at/staffing national fusion events. With a background in music, engineering, and taiko drumming, she approaches each dance and DJ set as a unique experience and opportunity for both verbal and nonverbal conversation. She is so excited to share her music taste as a DJ for Seattle venues.
