Roxanne Livingston Rich
Roxanne Livingston Rich is entering her 10th year of teaching at Bailey Fine Arts Centre. During her 15 years of instruction at Bailey’s 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., Secretary of the SC Solar Council, and the Sr. High Youth leader at Mt. Tabor Lutheran Church. In her free time she enjoys playing kickball and performing in local theater productions. In two of the past three years Roxanne has been asked to return to her alma mater, Airport High School, and choreograph their fall musical. Most importantly Roxanne loves spending time with her husband, Auston, and her rapidly expanding family!
Roxanne has been back teaching at BFA since 2010, managing the Facebook since 2011, choreographed for the BFA Competition Co. from Fall 2012 - Spring 2016, and is excited to be back choreographing for this amazing team this Fall! It is her goal to inspire her students 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.
