Our world class faculty is passionate, dedicated, and supportive. Not only will dancers receive high quality instruction, they will also learn life lessons in discipline, hard work, and perseverance that will last them a lifetime.
Since moving to L.A. from Canada in 1989, Roni Blak has made a name for herself through a career in the Arts. A member of Dance Masters of America and the National Dance Education Organization, she’s built and grown MNR DF to the premier studio it is today.
Roni’s talents extend outside of of MNR DF, where she staffs the dance program, mentors student choreographers, and creates original works at Archer School For Girls.
She is most excited about collaboration with her former partner, Molly Lorenz, on the launch of their non-profit, the BLAK & BLUE DANCE PROJECT, which creates socially aware, relevant, and original dance works for other non-profit fundraising events locally and nationally.
