Q&A with Stefanie Roos

For me, kindness is one of the greatest treasures in life.
Whether you are sharing it or receiving it, you feel connection and fulfillment. I’ve always found kindness with strangers to be the most powerful way to show unconditional care for a fellow human.

Always keep dreaming and believing in it. It creates the pathways and opportunities with your heart leading the way.

Kindness and human dignity have always been one of the most important aspects of life to me. It’s something I always strive to honor and create no matter how hard the conditions may be.

Anyone I’ve ever spoken with about dance either loves to do it or watch it! It brings people together and enables them to express, release and let the body do the talking.

When I was 3 years old, my leg was severely broken in 2 places and the doctors said I would never be an athlete. My parents never told me this until I was an adult and I am grateful for it!

As a teenager, I listened and danced to Prince and Madonna’s music endlessly. Working with them as an adult was truly an honor and an unrealized dream come true.
