Stephanie Yamamoto

Stephanie fell in love with partner dance in 2009 after discovering east coast swing and lindy hop. Since discovering fusion, her style has grown to encompass influences from balboa, west coast swing, blues, tango, and hip hop (among others), as both a lead and a follow.
Now based out of Seattle, she has enjoyed DJing and performing live fusion music at house parties, local venues, and dance weekends. 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.
