Long before Roz found herself in leotards and tights at a ballet barre, or bare foot in a modern dance class, she was gett’n down to the soulful sounds of Rhythm and Blues. Her love of movement led her to pursue dance in a more formal setting. She studied at Rosella Hightower’s Le Centre de Danse in France. She has a BA in dance and photography and a MFA in choreography from the University of Utah. Roz has taught, choreographed, and performed throughout the United States. She has been a member of the Artist-in-Education programs in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Kansas where she has worked with people of all ages from elementary to university students.
Over the years, Roz has combined dance with various media, including neon sculpture and film. For more than two decades she was a part of a dynamic duo called “Ripple Tales”, where she had the joyful opportunity of blending her skills as a dancer, fiddler and vocalist with the art of storytelling.
From the time we are in the womb through our progression of life we are moving. We all have kinetic habits and patterns some beneficial, others not so much. I offer a trained eye gathered from four decades as a movement artist and an undying curiosity about the human body. Together, we can play with the intention of unraveling any patterns, that may be causing imbalance or injury in your body. Then, we can begin lay down pathways for creating greater ease in movement.
