UVU Alum Featured On Dance Website

Utah Valley University is proud of its alumni. Recently, one of our former dance students had a personal feature on popular dance site, Pointe.

Stefanie Roper graduated from UVU back in 2015. Her current career in ballet stemmed from her experiences here at UVU. Roper, a Utah native with Colombian and Venezuelan heritage currently dances with New York based Ballet Hispanico.

While at UVU, Stefanie auditioned for one of our cultural dance companies where she later went on to choreograph, produce, and direct many of their performances. Roper then went on to take some ballet classes where she excelled. Those ballet classes led her to find a love for the discipline where she eventually graduated in dance with an emphasis in ballet.

Now, living in New York, she has been in various productions and performed on many of the greatest stages in NYC.
