Stephanie Kuban & Phoebe Stubblefield
Internationals, Nationals, and Sectionals Singles & Pairs Freestyle Coach, National Competitor, Professional Performer, Devoted Mother
Stephanie Kuban started skating at age 8 and has never looked back. She became a 5-time National competitor in pairs and in singles and later skated professionally as a principal skater in shows for two different production companies travelling around the U.S. and the World. Today Stephanie is a coach at the World Arena to skaters of all skating levels in both the pairs and singles discipline at the Sectionals, Nationals, and Internationals levels. She has taken skaters to Sectionals and U.S. Nationals events.
Stephanie’s love for the sport can be seen in her coaching. Stephanie is known for her caring and fun, yet tough, approach. “My favorite thing about coaching is seeing a skater’s smile when they accomplish a new goal.” If you ask why she loves skating so much Stephanie will tell you, “Because it feels like you are flying! Also, because it has taught me many valuable lessons at a young age.” And her favorite jump? “Toe loops!”
Outside of the rink Stephanie’s favorite things to do are skiing and spending as much time as possible with her two children, Colby (2) and Emmy (5 months). She also serves as the coach liaison member of the Broadmoor Skating Club Board of Directors.

Phoebe started skating when she was just 4 years old. Her favorite part of skating is jumping and her favorite moments are when she is landing a new jump, such as her triple axel. “I love to jump – it’s the challenge I enjoy the most about skating.”
When she is not training or competing Phoebe likes to hang out with friends and go shopping. She is also an avid animal lover with her favorites being reptiles and cats. Phoebe aspires to be a successful and influential woman when she grows up. “I look up to strong, self-confident, outspoken, and successful women. Those are things I admire and aspire to be.”
Fun fact: Phoebe has also done a little acting. She played the part of the young Bailey in the 2018 movie, “The Ice”.
