Amber Foulk- Owner/Instructor
My name is Amber Foulk and I am a mother of 5, and a 2005 Bellefontaine High School graduate. I was a cheerleader for 5 years and took dance and tumbling classes at Liles School of Dance in Bellefontaine for 14 years. I have helped with Little Chiefs and Junior Chiefs for 6 years and have choreographed their dance routines. After graduating I became the choreographer for Team Spirit cheer team where I met my former dance partner and together we opened a dance studio in Bellefontaine in 2009. I have owned and operated Dance Fuzion Studio in Bellefontaine for 10 years now, starting our 11th season. I continue my dance education by attending master dance classes at the Dance Teacher Summit NYC or Long Beach every summer with top choreographers like Bob Rizzo, Greg Russell, Mandy Moore, Wade Robson and the late Frank Hatchett.

I have taken my students to perform at Disneyland, Disney World, ABC Christmas Parade, Orange Bowl Halftime with GooGoo Dolls and Train, on Royal Caribbean Cruiselines, Harlem Globetrotters Halftime and many regional and National Dance Competitions. I believe that dance teaches self discipline and boost self confidence. I love being a dance teacher because I get to share my love of dance with others and inspire them to follow their dreams.

I have a combined 19 qualified years of teaching throughout Ohio. I started my dancing journey at the age of 3 with Dancers Elite School of Dance where my DEA certified instilled the love of dance in me.

While at RIMDC I sat in on many classes with amazing instructors that are currently performing and lead choreographers on Broadway. I still speak work them asking for inspiration on quality teaching.

Teaching little ones correct terminology and technique is part of my life's passion that allows dancers to grow in a safe nurtured environment.
