Long before Roz found herself in leotards and tights at a ballet barre, or bare foot in a modern dance class, she was gett'n down to the soulful rhythms of Rhythm and Blues. Her love of movement lead her to pursue dance in a more formal setting. She studied at Rosella Hightower's Le Centre de Danse in France. She has a BA in dance and photography and a MFA in choreography from the University of Utah. Roz has taught, choreographed and performed throughout the United States. She has been a member of the Artist-In Education programs in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Kansas where she has worked with people of all ages from elementary to university students.

Over the years, Roz has combined dance with various media, including neon sculpture and film. For more than two decades she has been part of a dynamic duo called "Ripple Tales", where she has had the joyful opportunity of blending her skills as a dancer, fiddler and vocalist with the art of storytelling.
