Stephanie Braeuner

 

Stephanie Braeuner has been dancing for nearly 10 years. First attempting styles like ballet and jazz, she began ballroom dancing shortly after graduating high school. Ever since then, she’s been in love. She has competed in numerous competitions in the southeast region as well as performing in local shows. Some of her favorite events are fundraisers because it’s a chance to give back in her own way. When asked what her favorite dance is, the reply will always be, “It depends what song is on”
