Featured in the hit documentary, Mad Hot Ballroom, Rodney builds connection with velocity! With inspirational energy, he can get a room full of hesitant strangers dancing and laughing together in minutes. This experience of connectedness builds a foundation for the more critical conversations that may need to take place in your organization.

"Rodney is a true professional. He is passionate about his work and as a speaker, he over-delivers! He is enthusiastic, upbeat and handles every question with intelligence and poise. He taught our employees basic dance moves and made it simple to follow no matter what their experience was with dance. Our employees are still asking about him!"

- Diane Dalzell, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, New York Presbyterian Hospital

I first experienced Rodney's social dancing workshop at AISNE's Health & Wellness conference, where I joined with some reluctance at the encouragement of a friend. By the end, I didn't want it to be over! Rodney is an incredibly gifted teacher and charismatic facilitator, infusing humor, compassion, and grace into a transformative experience. I enjoyed his workshop so much that I had him come to lead his Lessons from a Dancing Classroom workshop with our full faculty and staff on a Professional Development Day and he did not disappoint. The positive energy, joy, and connection was palpable among my colleagues and I'm so grateful that Rodney is doing this unique, and very much needed, work.

"He is a gifted leader who combines high social-emotional competencies, hard work, and diligent planning to build out ideas and connect with people in meaningful ways. His desire to serve, to be excellent, and his can-do spirit combine to set an inspired tone. It is not coincidental that others' skill development and leadership skills grow and blossom in his presence."

- Veronica Jutras, Assistant Head of School for Community Engagement, Gordon School
