"Ms. Rio is personally invested in EVERYTHING we do."

"My daughter loves Ms. Rio. Ms. Rio has been there to support her through so much in a loving and caring way. She reached out to her when her Stepfather passed away in a way she will never forget. Thank you, Ms. Rio, for being so kind. And thank you for being an amazing role model."
- Vicki Hubbard
"Ms. Rio knows how to not only work with a dancer on his or her technique but also how to connect emotionally with her dancers to get them to strive for their best. She has the unique ability to expect discipline and hard work from her dancers while acknowledging the humanness in each individual and being compassionate to their individual souls"
