Roxanne Livingston Rich
Roxanne Livingston Rich has been on staff at Bailey Fine Arts Centre for ten years now. During her 15 years of instruction at BFA under the direction of Cari Kirkland and Pam Bailey, Roxanne grew to discover not only her love of dance, but her love of performing, teaching, and choreographing.While obtaining her B.S. in Physics from Furman University, Roxanne participated and choreographed for two student run organizations: Pauper Players (musical theater) and Furman Fantasies (dance). Upon their success, the Furman Fantasies were approached to become the school sponsored dance team. Roxanne helped develop this team while holding the positions of vice president and tap & field choreographer. The Furman Dance Company was established in 2009 and is a team that continues to thrive today. Roxanne is also a graduate of USC with her Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering.
Outside of the dance studio, Roxanne is the Renewable Energy Project Coordinator at Gregory Electric Co., board member & Secretary of the SC Solar Council, and is an active member of Mt. Tabor Lutheran Church. In her free time she enjoys playing kickball and performing and choreographing for local theater productions. Most importantly Roxanne loves spending time with her husband, Auston, and is looking forward to becoming a mom this October!
As Roxanne takes a step back from being a classroom instructor and BFA Competition Co. choreographer to welcome her bundle of joy this fall, she looks forward to helping around the studio in any way possible, to include substitute teaching. When working with students, it is her goal to inspire everyone to get out of their comfort zones, go for the move or character that pushes their limits, and do it all for the love of the arts.
