"Rowan’s teaching style helped create the best learning environment I’ve experienced in my many years of dance classes. Taking her contemporary dance class improved not only my technique, but my also understanding of more abstract themes in dance.  From the first day, Rowan made it clear that we should become comfortable taking risks to grow in our dancing, so the class allowed me to be both challenged and supported. Her open and friendly demeanor really made me feel at ease and comfortable enough to take risks and ask questions. Above all, though she emphasized technique, Rowan treated each class as an exploration, allowing everyone to grow at their own pace and become deeply connected to dance. Her enthusiasm and love for dance spreads to her students through her teaching, making each class a great experience."

“Rowan is a wonderful teacher - she shares her enthusiasm and love for dance with her students in every class. Her students learn impeccable modern dance techniques in a class that also allows for improvisation and fun. Rowan encourages and challenges her students to grow as dancers - my daughter absolutely loves Rowan’s modern dance class!” 

Nicole M, parent of 9-year old at Park Hill Dance Academy, Denver, CO

"Rowan has a special connection with her students.  She gains respect with her vast knowledge, unique ideas, and personal ease.  My daughter has become a better dancer and gained confidence from Rowan's instruction."  

Stephanie M, parent of 13-year old at Park Hill Dance Academy, Denver, CO

"I am so grateful to Rowan for her kindness and patience in teaching my daughter ballet! My daughter had separation anxiety and had given up

on any extracurricular activities. We tried one more time with Rowan due to her familiarity from Aspen Academy and I am so glad we did. My daughter's passion, confidence, and skills have flourished under Rowan’s instruction. I am so happy and proud. Thank you!"
