STEF FAGAN - OWNER/OPERATOR/INSTRUCTOR
Hello everyone. My name is Stef Fagan. It has been a life-long dream of mine to open a dance studio to share my passion of dance with anyone and everyone. I have been trained in dance for 29 years beginning my dancing career at the young age of 3. My training includes Chechetti ballet, tap, jazz, modern, lyrical, pointe, tumbling, and hip hop.
Throughout the years I have traveled nation wide to train with some amazing choreographers. That list includes but is not limited to Mia Michaels, Wade Robson, Travis Wall, Ivan Koumaev, Joe Tremaine, Ian Carney, Laurie Johnson, Nick Drago, Marty Dew, Doug Caldwell, Nick Bass, and many others. My experiences with these choreographers created a new found excitement that I strongly desire to pass on to others interested in dance.
I have served as an instructor/choreographer at multiple dance studios in the Des Moines area. I also served as competition director at a Des Moines dance studio where I oversaw 112 competition dancers ages 3-18. The competition team won multiple awards for choreography and performances and traveled to Disneyland for an anniversary performance.
Whether dance is a career choice for you or a recreational outlet, Adair Dance Academy is the place for you. Please come see what we have to offer!

BRANDY HODGES - INSTRUCTOR
Everyone! My name is Brandy Hodges and I am excited to introduce myself to you
as one of the ADA instructors as of Fall of 2016. I grew up in north central Illinois, training
at a dance studio in my home town since the age of 4. Here I trained in ballet,
jazz, tap, pointe, and tumbling. I also competed several years in dance competitions
in the Chicago area. After college and
moving to Iowa I taught dance in the Des Moines area and trained with Hank and
Beth Adams from the Pointe Academy. In
1999, a Des Moines based magician sought me out to travel the Midwest and
perform in his illusion show. I was
hooked and have been dancing in the show and jumping out of tricks ever
since. I also provide the choreography
for the show and assist in stage production. One of my
favorite hobbies is continuing my own dance education. In 2010, I began
training in both ballroom dancing and aerial artistry, including pole fitness
which I continue to do on a regular basis yet today. My love for dance just seems to grow the
older I get! I am so excited to continue sharing mylove for dance with current
and future ADA students in years to come!
