hello + bonjour!
Stéphanie Visconti is a true triple threat from Toronto and a proud franco-ontarienne. She trained at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC where she completed the Musical Theatre Conservatory Program with honours.
This summer, Stéphanie will take the stage in the iconic Canadian production Anne of Green Gables at the Charlottetown Festival in PEI! Earlier this year, she toured Canada with the French-Canadian music & comedy trio Les Chiclettes as Vivie in their new show Sérieux? Bravo! (DMC Productions). She also recently performed in Les Zinspiré.e.s Flambant 9: Soirée des filles as Élise (Théâtre Français de Toronto), David Suzuki’s documentary The Nature of Things: Why We Dance (CBC), and in the North American Premier of Bend It Like Beckham the Musical at the Bluma Appel Theatre in Toronto (Starvox Entertainment). Other accolades include Mamma Mia (Arts Center of Coastal Carolina), Mame (Riverside Theatre), Family Channel’s Big Ticket Summer Concert (Budweiser Stage), Anatomy of a Dancer (Breakaway Entertainment), Broadway’s Future Songbook Series (Lincoln Center) and The Producers & The Wizard of Oz (Lower Ossington Theatre).
Stéphanie was a member of the Canadian National Tap Team and represented her country at the 2011 & 2012 International Dance Organization World Tap Dance Championships held in Germany, where she celebrated several top results including winning a Silver Medal. She has also won the 2018 Toronto Broadway World Award for the Fringe Festival Breakout Performance of a Female for her work in Anatomy of a Dancer in the role of Judy Garland.
When she isn’t on stage, Stéphanie spends most of her time experimenting with choreography. She is immensely interested in finding the ways that dance becomes more expressive than words. She has choreographed for Marquee Productions in NYC as well as Breakaway Entertainment and Théâtre Novo in Toronto. Recently, Stéphanie had the opportunity to be associate choreographer for EveryBODY on Stage’s Cellblock Tango: Reimagined short film. Every week, she shares her love for dance at City Dance Corps in Toronto, where she teaches a variety of different styles including theatre dance choreography as well as tap & jazz absolute beginner courses.
