My name is Becky Jones. I grew up in the little town of Othello, WA. I was one of those girls that couldn't wait to get out of town...but then ended up back right where I started! :) I love Othello, and am thrilled to be very established here. My husband, Ken, also grew up here. He is a Director of and head physical therapist for Columbia Physical Therapy in Othello, and has been with them for 15 years. We have been married 28 years this June, and have 5 beautiful children; Renae, Matt, Reese, Maya and Rylinn.
A few years ago, we purchased the old Athletic Club, to convert it into office space for Ken's Physical Therapy practice, and left the side with the courts for our use. Ken really enjoys racquetball and refinished one of the floors so he can get his racquetball fix. I, on the other hand, had "my" side refinished for dance.
I have always loved dance.
When I was little my parents enrolled me in tap dance classes, with the Mitzel School of Dance. I remember the excitement and joy it brought me....and my parents!
I think my love for dance grew from then on!
Fast forward several years, in junior high I participated in any dance I could find, and continued on to join the OHS Drill Team. It was a dream come true for me.
When our first daughter, Renae, was little we enrolled her in clogging with Debbie Gilbert's Dance Studio. After watching her dance for a year, I was super eager to try it out and convinced Debbie to start an Adult Clogging Class. I LOVED IT!...And my addiction to clogging began. I clogged with Debbie for 3 years before her studio retired.
Jump forward several years again.... :)
And there were no local dance options for my 2 younger daughters or our little community.
So, I took matters into my own hands, and what I thought would be a 2 class fun hobby has grown into 15+ classes, 2 sites and many Summer dance camps.
I LOVE IT! and all my dancers! I have met so many amazing people and made some great friends!
I would love to teach all my classes...but I don't think I would make it past Tuesdays! :) I am thrilled and feel blessed to have found some great talent here in our little town. And with that.....
A HUGE thanks to ALL my amazing instructors and all the hard work they put into teaching and dance! I love ya!
