Your Trusted Dance Studio in Bel Air
About Our Dance School
Dance With Me School of Dance is a community-oriented dance studio in Bel Air, MD. A few years ago, we broke out of being under the county recreational program, and opened our own private studio.
You can have peace of mind when you register for our classes because our instructors and owners have been teaching dance in the county for more than 25 years. Also, we welcome both experienced dancers and beginners to our classes.

Bambi started dancing at two years old. Since then, she has led an exceptional dance career. She majored in dance in college, where she competed in, and won, many competitions. Bambi has danced alongside renowned hip-hop dancer Esperanto Bean and his company “Dimensions of Funk.” She has also performed as a backup dancer for Erica Martinez.
In addition to being a dance instructor, Bambi has been a hairstylist at Cheveux Salon and Spa in Bel Air for the last 10 years. Bambi has two young sons, both of whom share her passion for dance and performing.

Stephanie began dancing when ballet classes were offered at her preschool, and she has never stopped. She studied at Jeanette’s Studio of Dance, then Erin’s Studio of Dance, where she became an assistant and eventually a teacher. While at Erin’s Studio, she became a certified instructor. She bought the studio when the owner retired, and formed Dance Connection.
Stephanie owned and operated Dance Connection for 11 years. During this period, she also choreographed for local school plays and other groups who needed choreography for competitions. Stephanie is a huge musical theater lover, and has performed in many musicals and revues.
When Stephanie closed her studio, she was teaching with Debbie, as well as other studios and fitness centers around the country. She decided to stay with Debbie and Bambi when they opened Dance With Me School of Dance. In our studio, Stephanie teaches ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, and theatrical, as well as technique and choreography classes.
Stephanie has a degree in psychology. When she’s not dancing, she helps her husband run his business, and loves spending every spare minute with her two amazing sons.
Originally from Arizona, Emily began studying dance when she was three years old. She is an accomplished ballet, tap, jazz, and lyrical dancer, and has studied other forms of dance in her training.
For 11 years, she was a member of a respected performance and competition dance team. During that time, she trained, performed, and competed in London with the Royal Ballet, in Scotland, and across the United States, including Hawaii. Also, Emily has had roles in the Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
Emily has experience in teaching dance at schools in Arizona, as well as far away as Zimbabwe, Africa. After a small break from teaching to raise her four young children, and dancing in her living room, she is thrilled to be teaching again at Dance With Me. She can’t wait to fulfill her dream of performing on stage again.
