Ms. Rush-Locke knows a little something about the passion for dance as she began her dance career at the Wheaton Studio of Dance at the age of 3. Over the past 37 years, she has assisted Ms. Reese as an assistant teacher and later progressed to teacher where she continues teaching all styles of dance. Her dancing has led her to performing in numerous competitions, conventions, and shows.
