Turner has toured and performed in France with the Writhm Dance Company of Detroit, been a member of the International Assoc-iation of Black Dance, and worked with internationally known actor/director Barry Scott.

“I am excited about sharing this experience,” said Turner. “Growing up in Nashville and sharing what I’ve learned in Nashville is always exciting to me, and it is not always easy for people to hear the truth about Black heritage.

I’m always eager to share snippets of ‘our’ story through dance, acting, writing and teaching.”

Turner plans to open a performance studio in Music City called simply A Rossi Turner Studio (ARTS).
