Meet Stephanie Brodie

Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephanie Brodie.

Stephanie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am a professional dancer/aerialist and model who enjoys performing at live events, live stage performances, for commercials with companies and for music videos for artists! I am formally trained in hip hop, tap, ballet, jazz, jazz funk, contemporary, modern, and lyrical dance styles. I have been training and performing on various aerial apparatus’ for the past four years. Right after I graduated from high school, I went to college at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles where I studied dance as well as Communications. About halfway through my first year I decided I was in the wrong place and wanted to jump in start my professional dance career. I didn’t return to LMU for another year, instead I went to the Edge Performing Arts Center where I was accepted as one of twenty Scholarship Students. There I studied all styles of dance and was introduced into the ins and outs of the commercial industry. At the end of the year I signed with Go2 Talent Agency for representation, who I am still happily represented by six years later!! I have had the pleasure of performing in a wide variety of dance and aerial jobs in my career from music videos to commercials and from company work to live stage performances. I am currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada where I was performing in multiple shows, venues, and corporate events around the Strip. I danced and danced with fire in Cirque du Soleil’s annual fund raiser One Night for One Drop. My next step is moving to New York so I can fulfill my childhood dreams of dancing on Broadway!!!! It’s so close, I can taste it! 🙂

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My experience being in the entertainment industry has not been a smooth one to say the least. Luckily for me I do a very wide range of things within the entertainment industry from modeling, to dancing, to singing, to aerial. Although I do all of these things it has been tough to navigate at times. There have been dry spells, months without working at a time, but I love it so much that I’ve never once considered giving up or changing my life’s trajectory.

The biggest struggle that stands out to me happened quite recently actually. It was in January of this year, 2020. I was booked and rehearsing for a major latin artist for a six-month world tour. In my career I have heard about people rehearsing for tour and getting dropped mid-process, but I never once thought I would be able to add my name to the people that that’s happened to. But that was my reality one day when we showed up for rehearsals on week three and all got dropped at once. Major productions like that have many reasons for the things that they do, and I’m sure have valid reasons for dropping all eight dancers and the choreographer at once, but at the time it just feels like your entire world is collapsing. Fast forward two months and Covid-19 put the entire world to a halt anyways, so now it doesn’t feel that bad. Hehe 🙂

Please tell us about your work.
I am a professional dancer/aerialist and model who is known for performing at live events, live stage performances, for commercials with companies and for music videos for artists! I am known for my confidence and my edgy appearance to my peers. I am most proud of the genuine connections with people in my industry, some of which I have looked up to since I was a little girl, such as Kenny Ortega, Tony Testa, and Galen Hooks! My look definitely sets me apart from others as well as my signature style. I am known for dancing in heels by my peers, I have a very sexy, seductive style about me that is also very contemporary. Being an aerialist sets me apart as well, most dancers never touch aerial apparatus’ in their career.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
To be honest, I don’t believe in luck. Everything in everyone’s life happens for a reason. Always. I have been successful in my career because I put in the hard work and I was destined to be successful in it. It was simply just in the cards for me.
