The small community of Roseau Minnesota may be better known for hockey but it is also becoming known as a mecca for young dancers. The dance studio led by teacher and choreographer Karen Enger is a hub for more than 50 young dancers who study tap, jazz, and ballet and -- in the course of their studies -- also develop confidence, poise, and discipine. Dance is not an easy art and requires commitment — not just by the dancers but by their parents and their teacher who invest their time and energy in these young artists.
