Meet Stephanie Hansen
After starting her years as a dancer at an early age, Stephanie danced
competitively with private dance studios and on to become a member of the Riverton High Dance Company as well as starting her cheer experience on the Riverton High School Cheer Team as a sophomore in high school. During her junior high and high school years, Stephanie taught for local dance studios and in 2003 opened her own dance & cheer studio, Illuzion Dance & Cheer. Stephanie had a very successful studio that was well known in the dance community. She owned her studio for 12 years before closing that chapter of her life to be able to
keep up with her busy home life where she has four kids and a loving husband. Stephanie was also the Cheer coach at Riverton High School for 10 years from 2010-2017. While at Riverton, she lead the cheer program to many State and National titles, leaving the program after the2017 school season with a JV All Girl and Varsity Co-ed Region and State Titles and putting both teams on the map at the prestigious UCA National Cheerleading Championships in Orlando Florida. She
is also a member of the Utah Cheer Team Coaches Association where she also serves as a board member. Stephanie is well known around our cheer and dance community by her professionalism, organization, positive coaching habits, ability to run successful programs who see positive results and create kids and young adults who graduate her programs with life skills that will forever follow them in the sport, scholastically and in everyday life. Stephanie is a passionate instructor
and is excited to share her passion in the art of dance and cheer with our students here at Project Dance. Her favorite color is purple and her favorite food is Italian. She loves to listen to music and can’t help but to choreograph in her head to it!
