Miss Mariah

Mariah has been teaching at Sheila’s for 13 years, but has been at the studio for a total of 22. She started as a dancer, at the age of 3, looking up to Sheila as a mentor and role model. For 10 years Mariah danced competitively on Sheila’s competition teams, which grew her love for dance to moving into a teaching position. When she turned 16 she started teaching at Sheila’s, both in, recreational and competitive classes. 

 Mariah’s competition classes have won national titles, high and top overall awards, and special awards. She teaches from gymnastics, to open, to her all time favorite; hip hop! With the new styles and techniques coming about of hip hop, she mainly loves to teach her kids to dance with passion. She loves to watch her kids leave problems at the door and to be so in the moment in her class. Through her choreography, whether it be fun or on a serious note, she wishes to teach her students to have fun and be confident.

Miss Shelby

Shelby has been with Sheila since adolescence. She danced competitively around New England and has won several awards over the years. She began teaching for the studio in 2000. Shelby has a wonderful time teaching young children. She has a natural mothering nature about her, as she has two children that are also students at the studio. Shelby is known for her patience and loving way she has with kids, and encourages her students to put their best foot forward.

Marissa is one of our founding students at Sheila Rosanio’s School of Dance and Gymnastics since 1989. She was a member of one of the very first competition classes in 1995 with her exceptional acro skills. She has been part of many performances with Sheila’s dance team including being invited as the entertainment on the Dolphin Cruise Line in 1996. She competed in many competitions from 1996-2002 where she won several regional and national placements. She started her dance career with Sheila as an Assistant and quickly moved into a Teacher and Choreographer role. She specializes in acro and technique but can teach every style to any age student. Marissa has a passion for dancing and teaching and strives to provide a positive learning environment. Her goal is to make all students feel like the studio is their ‘safe place’ or ‘second home’ as it was for her when she was a student. 

Miss Morgan

Morgan has been a member of Sheila's dance family since she was a baby. We are so lucky to have her added into our faculty this year! She has two younger sisters who have also danced at Sheila’s since very young ages as well. She has experienced endless growth and has won countless awards under Sheila’s leadership.

Morgan is now a recreational - Xcel levels gymnastics coach, and says she is also very fortunate to teach recreational and competitive classes at our studio. Doing so she gets to spread her passion, for both, to her students. 

"I love every child I get to teach, and I hope to give them the same amazing experience I was fortunate enough to grow up with at dance."
