Roshawn Dorsey,

affectionately known as Ms. Ro, is a

dynamic inspirational speaker with a story that resonates with triumph over adversity, the power of resilience, and perseverance.

 She is the founder of Ms. Ro's Dance Closet, a premiere dance-wear boutique, catering to all skin tones, ages, and sizes, for all genres of the performing arts.

Her journey from a young dance enthusiast in Compton to a multifaceted community leader in Georgia is a testament to her unwavering spirit

She has had a passion for dance her entire life. She started her first dance team at the age of 13. She moved to GA. in 1992 to kick her professional dance career into gear but sadly, shortly after moving, she had two life-changing car accidents. She was told she should never dance again.

With God's grace, in 1999 she opened her dance Studio "-N- Motion Dance" where she created an award-winning dance company. After 10 years of running the studio, the physical damage from the car accidents was so severe that she was forced to close her beloved school.

In the same year, she was struck with a medical condition called Bell's Palsy which left her with permanent partial facial paralysis.

Her passion for dance never wavered. A few years later, she opened Ms. Ro's Dance Closet in the heart of Historic College Park. At that time she was one of the only Black-Owned Dancewear Boutiques in Georgia, and there were only 6 in the United States.

She received an appointment to the College Park Main Street Association Board of Directors. She is a member of the College Park Cultural Arts Council and The City of South Fulton Arts Commission.
