Bianca Rodriguez has been teaching ay Academy of Danse for three years. She has been dancing since she was three. Bianca was first inspired to take dance classes by a family member. She has learned and enjoyed different dance styles including Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Musical Theater, Contemporary, and Hip Hop, she was also in DeeAnn’s Disney Princess Pointé dance in 2009. At the age of five she joined the Napa Valley College Ballet Folklorico dance group and participated in it for about seven years where she had the opportunity to perform dances from different regions of Mexico.
Bianca was asked to audition for the Academy of Danse competition team. Being the youngest on the team that year she loved having a group of dancers to look up to. She was on the team for five years and loved all the team bonding moments. Going out to dinner at crazy hours, hair and makeup before competitions, and all of the team practices during the week. Through out those years she also grew as a dancer and as a person.
Bianca graduated high school in 2013 and registered for classes at the Napa Valley College for the up coming fall semester where she attended for a year. Bianca hopes to return to school but at the moment is focusing on work. In 2014 applied at the Napa Marshalls/Homegoods store, in 2015 she was promoted to part-time CEC (customer experience coordinator). Bianca has gained a confidence that she never thought she had and hopes to help others find theirs.
As well as being a teacher at the studio, Bianca has been working with kids at an in-home preschool since 2017 and loves it. In becoming a teacher Bianca hopes to, again, help others build a confidence in dance and teach kids to enjoy dance as much as she does.
