Born in Orlando, Florida, Royce Reed attended Florida A&M University where she received a degree in Theater Education and Humanities. She is the Founder/Director/Owner of Fantashique Apprentice Dance Company. Royce’s purpose in starting Fantashique with longtime friend Lenora Spence was to offer unique and innovative dance training, while encouraging members to excel in all aspects of life. Royce’s goal is to shape the members of Fantashique Apprentice into respectable and responsible young ladies by building strong self esteem and confidence in a sister-like setting. While running Fantashique, Royce is also a staff member at Studio 305 in Las Vegas as well as an ensemble member of the Rolle Ensemble in Las Vegas under the Direction of Tyrell Rolle. She is a mother to Braylon, a 12 year old boy whose smile brightens up the darkest room and whose energy keeps her on her toes at all times.
Royce’s decision to start the Artistic Dreams Dance Competition was a dream she set in her head many years ago after attending so many competitions that priced out many companies. The goal for Artistic Dreams is to give all teams, whether clubs, organizations, schools, companies, studios, etc a competition that all can afford. A competition where you can possibly win more than you spend. A competition about DANCE! A competition built on old school competition! No long adjudication ceremonies,no judges awards, no competition without warm-up time and finally level stipulations based on skill division.
