Instructor; RJDF Hip Hop Crew Director
Diane has been dancing her whole life. She began dancing at the age of 8 and has been teaching since she was 16 years old. Although she teaches every form of dance, her specialties have always been Pom productions and Hip-hop productions. Her first Hip-Hop choreography was 32 years ago. She called her class "Funk" but the moves were what we all know as Hip-Hop today. Diane was an NFL Cheerleader for the Big Red Line, the St. Louis Football Cardinal Cheerleaders. After that, Diane was the head choreographer for the former Vic-Tanney Dance Team. This team performed throughout the St. Louis area including "on the field" dance numbers at several sold-out St. Louis Cardinal baseball games. Diane went on to form her own small dance company called "Movement. This was a jazz-based performance company. She has also been Hip-Hop presenter at the National level and has been a regional judge for dance competitions. Miss Diane is also a proud dance mother to Miss Delaney who is an RJ Dance Studio Alum and Masterclass instructor!
