Who I am

Who I am

"Success is no accident.

It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying,

sacrifice and most of all,

love of what you are doing or learning to do."

Brian Murphy and Stephanie Krise: Experiencing performance in its greatest form

As a performer, choreographer, owner of a studio, producer of shows, I have grown and appreciated the value of collaboration and partnerships.

I understand my success is from the work of others.

Work hard, people will work hard for you, that is key
