In 1995 Renee was the Overall SA Dance Champion and had roles in a multitude of TV commercials and leading roles in musicals. Her professional career lead her to working for organizations such as Disney, Warner Bros., International Grand Prix Assoc., and many more.
As a young adult Renee expanded her passion for Dance and her studies included international instruction from world renown choreographers in New York, Los Angeles and London. This lead to forming a career in teaching and studio directorship by obtaining formally recognized certifications:

She is particularly committed to providing her students with an insight into how the body works and how to correctly engage the core to support dancers’ flexibility and control.
She has taken classes at both Mather Dance Company and Millennium Dance Complex, thriving in a fast-paced environment where she can experiment with different styles of choreography.
