"Dance and working with children are my 2 passions so being able to go to work each day and teach dance to students ages 2 thru adult is an amazing job and opportunity. I am inspired daily by my students and families.
I live my life by this:"Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain."
It's old fashioned now, but we do what we say we're going to do. Plain and simple. Roxie is the sole teacher for all classes taught at the studio. "I do not believe in hiring high school students or unqualified youth or adults to teach at any level. When students come to the studio they know they are going to be taught by a professionally trained dance teacher and that is me." The studio is 100% professional at all levels.
I love to teach and share the dance, gymnastics, fitness experience with all ages and levels. Dance gives us all the opportunity to develop physical fitness, emotional expression, creative thinking, and spiritual awareness. This unique experience inspires confidence, musicality, generosity, creativity, and positive energy which cultivates health and well being for a lifetime. Wheather you are an aspiring
professional, use dance class to compliment other athletic endeavors, enjoy dance as a means of physical conditioning or a stress release or just want to learn some new moves. the Roxy studio is here to guide each individual towards their goals.
