All dancers need to wear clothing they can move in.  The younger dancers ages 2-10 usually like to wear leotard and tights and dress pretty.  The older  dancers ages 10 and older like to wear shorts and a t-shirt, tights and shorts or  leggings.  The older dancers wear a mish match of sweatpants and t-shirts or tank tops and shorts.  Comfortable clothing is required.  If you are wearing clothing that you cannot move in you will not be allowed to dance.  If doing a tumble warm up you will need to be bare foot, hair tied back in ponytail out of face and a leotard.

The Roxy Dance Studio was founded in 1996 by Roxanne Bissonnette-Skeels.  I had a dream at a very young age to become a dance instructor and business owner. After graduating from college I began to build clients and nail down a location to open my studio.  I first began teaching classes by traveling around to area facilities in Franklin,  Swanton, and St. Albans .   I figured it was easier for one person to travel to many, but as time has gone on I have established myself at my home studio in Swanton.

There are not many people in the workforce today that can say they love to go to work and enjoy their job, but I certainly can.  "I love my job every day of the week".   This is a full-service professional dance studio teaching over 15 dance styles as well as Zumba, and other fitness classes.  Roxie teaches every class herself.  Each year I have a teaching assistant or two that share my passion for dance and working with children. 

Every child is afforded the opportunity to learn and dance at the studio.  No one has ever turned away.  If your child has a learning disability or a disability of any kind we can work with you.  Over the years I have taught dance classes to students who were hearing impaired, in wheelchairs, have learning disabilities, and have physical disabilities.  Dance is a way of expression for all.



What shoes you need depends on the class you are in and what style of dancing you will be learning.
