Marieanne has been dancing all her life, starting her training at age two. She feels very fortunate to have discovered her life's passion and the rhythm in her bones so early. Her commitment to dance earned her a 25-year service pin from Carolina Dance Masters in 2012. She attended teacher's training school at Kent State in Ohio, is certified by test to teach through Dance Masters of America and is a certified clogging instructor through the National Clogging Leaders Organization. Marieanne enjoys teaching at workshops and conventions and has had the privilege to do so in Atlanta, Denver, Las Vegas and here in North Carolina. Marieanne has great love for all forms of dance, but her primary interests and true passions are for tap and clogging.
