Roxy and Dan love the Shuswap, the outdoors, our quaint coffee shops, but most of all the people. They are delighted to contribute to The chalet expansion project and feel it is a bonus to have the opportunity to learn a new style of dancing.

They moved to Salmon Arm 10 years ago and found a community they love. They discovered Larch Hills ski area and enjoy both skiing and snowshoeing there. You will find them up at the ski hill during the Christmas period taking part in the annual lantern ski, which they find to be very magical.

When not enjoying the outdoors, they are both busy with their business enterprises. Dan has a landscaping business as well as working as a massage therapist. He also has experience as a carpenter and chef and volunteers with the Salmon Arm Rescue Unit. Roxy co-founded the Shuswap Event, a free online calendar of local events and social media networks that celebrates great things that are happening in the community. Roxy also has run the In the Groove Studio, teaching music for the past 10 years.

Roxy and Dan love to dance. They have taken some West Coast Swing classes and can do the Country 2 step. They are comfortable with Jive and Swing and Roxy with Hip Hop. They are looking forward to building on their repertoire of dance moves. Learning the Hustle under the tutelage of Orlando Robertson is a real challenge because the timing is so different from dances they already know. On top of that Roxy knows she needs to “learn to follow Dan’s lead” so the one on one instruction has been very helpful. This will be their first public dance performance.
