About Robin Phares: 
In 2004 I set out on a mission to find my passion and purpose. I discovered Nia. I knew from my very first class that I found exactly what I had been looking for. All of my life I have loved to dance and to think that I was able to put that to use at the age of 39 thrilled me with a capital T!! I received my whitebelt certification in 2005 and began teaching just 3 months later. I have added several classes to my schedule and am always looking for opportunities to share the JOY of Nia with all.
