Canadian-born Stefano began his training at Elitedanceworx just outside Toronto. In 2019, he joined dance ensemble Moving 4ward and wowed a global audience as a contestant on the TV series World Of Dance, produced by Jennifer Lopez. Later that year, he received a scholarship for the prestigious Glorya Kaufman School of Dance at the University of Southern California, where he shone in a great variety of styles and works by William Forsythe, Ohad Naharin, Jiří Kylián, Justin Peck, and Kyle Abraham, among others. In the summer of 2022, he made his international debut with USC Kaufman at Stadttheater Fürth. In 2023 he graduated from USC with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in Dance – before moving on directly to the Gauthier Dance JUNIORS in the 2023/24 season.
