Hello and welcome,
My name is Stephanie Delaney I'm 28 years old and I am the founder of Animated Inspired Parties. This 'About Me' summary, is to give you a better insight into what to expect when choosing AIP.
I started performing at the age of 8, when my mum finally gave in and sent me to a local performing arts club after making her sit through endless dance routines I had made up in my bedroom and singing her the latest song i had made up. From then on my passion for performing grew!
I studied Drama and Music at GCSE level and went straight into college to study It further. With a BTEC National Diploma in Performing Arts, I started my career as a Children's Entertainer, which was my dream job growing up, as not only did I love children, I got to take to the stage in the evenings and perform in team shows. I traveled around the South West for 4 years working at various holiday parks, gaining experience in presenting and building on my entertainment skills.
Needing a challenge, I returned to study Musical theatre at degree level training further in ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary and vocals and gained a 2:1 honours degree after 3 years of hard (but fun) work. Fresh out of university I landed myself a role as Cinderella in a touring pantomime and that is where my AIP story begins....
When I'm not busy being a Princess/entertaining, I teach dance to children and teens.
Thanks for reading :)
