Stephanie is the Chief Operating Officer of The Florida Keys Outreach Coalition for the Homeless. She also makes a mean vegan spicy mayo and the best mini-cheesecakes around. Stephanie is a fierce and mighty competitor with a wall full of trophies and she wears high heels no matter what, even when out walking through the rough terrain of Key West with her very amazing dog, Stanley.

Born and raised in the Bronx, Penny relocated to Key West in 1977 with a B.A. in Dance Education from Herbert H. Lehman College. Penny purchased the CoffeeMill property (known for it’s El Brazo Fuerte coffee) in the mid-eighties, co-founded the Key West Dance Theatre and became an original member of the Fabulous Spectrelles (Toni). Penny choreographs for all the theater groups in Key West including Keys Kids (credits include: Annie, Peter Pan, King & I, High School Musical, Footloose, Wizard of Oz, Little Mermaid, Oliver, Wanda’s World) the Waterfront Playhouse (favorites include: Urinetown, Reefer Madness, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Drowsy Chaperone, Xanadu, Spamalot) and the Red Barn Theatre (credits include: Rocky Horror Picture Show, Bat Boy, Forbidden Broadway, Sister Robert Anne’s Cabaret Class, Bingo) and produces DanceWorks! (this year featured A Midsummer’s Night Dream May 16 & 17 at TWT) and Walk on White’s ‘hiPSo fActO’ - an informal live dance performance series. In 2009 the CoffeeMill was awarded an ‘Art Reach’ Grant to present Peter and the Wolf to school aged children. Penny is also interested in promoting dance in our schools through the CoffeeMillDance Outreach and Scholarship Program bringing dance to children who cannot get to the studio and is a recipient of two ‘Artist in Schools’ Grants. Every summer Penny is proud to be a part of Camp Bravo! A musical theatre camp for children in collaboration with the Waterfront Playhouse and Keys Community School of the Arts (credits include:Once On This Island, The Aristocats Jr.)

Erin gets to flex her creative muscle as Artistic Director of the Studios of Key West but has also completed a graduate degree at Harvard, served as a National Park Service Search and Rescue volunteer, visited all 50 states, rescued a 300lb sea turtle, nabbed the title of Key West Ms. Gay Pride, and gotten involved with Special Olympics. She says yes to pretty much everything. Luckily her wife, daughter and crazed terrier put up with this.

Since moving to Key West in 2014, John has been an avid supporter of the Arts and Artists. John is a retired attorney from Pittsburgh, PA with many interests such as sailing, horseback riding, cycling, skiing, skate boarding and is an active member of the worldwide Burning Man community. John is fond of saying “I love Key West but if there is one thing we need more of it’s dance!”
