While at Point Park she performed at the Pittsburgh Playhouse in faculty performances including works with Ron Tassone, Pearlann Porter, and Kiki Lucas.  She was also in Doug Bentz’s contemporary debut performance of “The Snow Queen”.  With a duel concentration in jazz dance and dance pedagogy (the art of teaching dance), Rosalynn, affectionately referred to as Roz by her students and peers, quickly landed teaching jobs at various prestigious dance establishments in the Pittsburgh area.

In an effort to continue her dance education, Roz attends an array of dance teacher conventions, seminars, workshops and classes to better serve her students and help strengthen the local dance community. Rennie Harris Puremovement Dance Company of Philadelphia, Pulse Teacher Convention in New York, Pillow Project Dance Company of Pittsburgh, The Dance Teacher Summit in New York, More Than Just Great Dancing with Misty Lown and Dance Masters of Pennsylvania are just some of the dance teacher functions she regularly attends throughout the year.
