hello + bonjour!

Stéphanie Visconti (she/her/elle) is a triple threat based in Toronto and a proud Franco- Ontarian artist. She is particularly passionate about the potential that dance has to tell stories that transcend language, unite people from different walks of life, and heal those who come in contact with it.

Stéphanie trained at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC where she completed the Musical Theatre Conservatory Program with honours, and worked across the US for the following year soaking up a unique theatrical skillset. Since returning home, Stéphanie is grateful to have worked in 5 provinces and 2 territories in Canada, and wishes to someday have the opportunity to reach all 13! Her favourite Canadian musical theatre credits include playing the Apache Dancer in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Tweed & Co., performing in the legendary Canadian classic Anne of Green Gables at the Charlottetown Festival, being a part of the North American Premier of Bend It Like Beckham the Musical at the Bluma Appel Theatre in Toronto, and playing Judy Garland in Anatomy of a Dancer for which she won the 2018 Toronto Broadway World Fringe Festival Breakout Female Artist Award.

Stéphanie is also very excited to have had opportunities to do French-Canadian work and hopes to continue to tell stories in her native tongue. Some of her francophone accolades include touring Canada with the French-Canadian music & comedy trio “Les Chiclettes” as Vivie in Sérieux? Bravo!, performing in the digital play Les Zinspiré.e.s Flambant 9: Soirée des filles as Élise through the Théâtre Français de Toronto, originating the role of Élise in Le Roi Poubelle which had its first performance at the 2022 Feuilles Vives Festival, as well as recently choreographing and staring in Marie- Claire Marcotte’s short film Goût d’un mensonge.

During the still of the pandemic, Stéphanie studied jazz/tap dance history, musicality for dance, as well as creative writing through Toronto Metropolitan University and various industry connections such as Zak Nemorin (Uprooted). She loves to partake in opportunities that unite her passion for such subjects. For instance, one of Stéphanie’s most treasured creative experiences was working on David Suzuki’s Why We Dance: The Nature of Things documentary with CBC where she helped uncover what makes human dance practices so unique and fundamental to our species. She equally enjoyed being associate choreographer to Greg Carruthers on EveryBODY on Stage’s inclusive and innovative project Cell Block Tango: Reimagined. On her own time, Stéphanie continues to push the boundaries of movement-based storytelling through her teaching practices at City Dance Corps in Toronto and personal projects.
