Meet The Founder:
Stephanie P Kemp
With a passion for dance and a commitment to education, I’ve had the privilege of guiding tens of thousands of students on their journey from beginners to the most advanced levels. Over the past three decades, I’ve not only cultivated a profitable and thriving business but have also fostered enduring success by prioritizing the needs of my students, their families, and my dedicated team.
In my philosophy, it’s not about them working for me; I work for them. At New England Dance Academy, our foundation is built on the principle of leading with value. We firmly believe that a high-quality dance education should be accessible to every child, irrespective of their talent level or time commitments. Our programs go beyond recreation; they are fundamentally educational because we are firm believers that every child deserves more.
At the core of our mission is the belief that fostering a love for dance should be an inclusive and enriching experience for every individual. I am proud to lead a team that shares this vision, and together, we continue to inspire and educate the next generation of dancers at New England Dance Academy.
Stephanie P. Kemp is an award-winning choreographer, teacher, mentor, author, and no-nonsense CEO. A self-proclaimed business junky, her obsession with the service industry catapulted her early success from start-up to scale-up, proving service—great service—is relationship driven. She believes it is the responsibility of mentors, coaches, and business owners alike to help everyone in their organization see past limitations, set high expectations, and earn their worth.
Not a fan of the “everyone gets a trophy generation,” she is outspoken and direct about her views on competition and complacency. Her motto “Do Better” is her personal and professional theme song—a song that she plays on loop in her daily life.
A serial entrepreneur, she has used her time-tested techniques, strategies, and lessons to not only sustain her seven- and eight-figure businesses but endure and thrive for over three decades. Her specialized “Wealth” formula has allowed her to live a life of abundance on her terms in alignment with her goals and her dreams. Not a mathematician, scholar, or MBA, she is proof positive that you too can build a successful life filled with passion and purpose. Her message to fellow entrepreneurs, “You’re not selfish.” A life showered with personal and professional achievements is not only possible—it’s imperative.
“I want to give back to the studio owner. I want to help the dance teacher turned CEO of their dance studio go beyond what they thought was possible”.
Say goodbye to the status quo
Gone are the days of believing we have to choose between business and family, impact and income, or even quality and rapid growth. The real question is:
How does one go about creating a life of sustained success?
The same year Stephanie P. Kemp launched her first business and set out to establish a new industry standard, she married her high school sweetheart and committed herself to success in her professional and personal endeavors. Drawing on the hard-earned lessons of others’ failures and successes, she developed a unique approach that made it possible for her to grow one of the largest and most successful dance studios in the country, without sacrificing her family or her sanity.
In Success is Just the Beginning, this celebrated CEO, coach, mentor, and educator reveals the six timeless lessons that have enabled her to build what she calls a Wealth-oiled Machine.
