While performing professionally as dancer for more than 10 years, Roger was trained in multiple dance disciplines: Ballet, Modern, Dunham, Graham, Horton, Middle-Eastern Dance and West-African Dance. Roger’s dance experience led him to become a Teaching-Artist. Working with organizations like Center for Modern Dance Education, Young Audiences New York, Young Audiences New Jersey, Art Horizons, New Jersey City University, and more, Roger has taught every age group from toddlers to senior citizens. As well as, taught every ability from autistic, deaf, paraplegic to athletically advanced dance students.
Through the years, Roger gained a passion for fitness and later turned that passion into a career. After becoming a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, Roger started working for the Glenpointe Spa and Fitness (Teaneck, NJ). There he combined his fitness knowledge, his dance experience, and military experience (US Army) and taught group exercise class (World Rhythm and Military Pump). Roger has been expanding his fitness knowledge and perfecting his train technique with Magnus since 2012.
