Marie is the owner of Riolo Dance, a ballroom dance studio in downtown Indianapolis. She has taught dance in Indianapolis since 1988 after returning from Brigham Young University where she majored in physical education/dance and performed with the prestigious BYU Ballroom Dance Company.
Marie and Riolo Dance are involved in many charitable events yearly and she is thrilled to be supporting Reason to Dance for Riley. She strongly believes in giving back to the community. This philosophy runs through her family. Marie and Bryan, her husband of over 26 years, will be welcoming home their twin daughters (Madalyn and Macey, 21) from missions where they have served the people of Quito, Ecuador and Trujillo, Peru for the past 18 months. They also have a son, Bryan (23), who served a 2 year mission in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala and is now continuing his education at BYU. Marie’s mission is sharing the love of dance with people of all ages!
