Justina is the Owner of Sapphire Dance Company. Mrs. Justina was born and raised in Staten Island, but has now lived in Delaware for 15 years. She danced as a little girl and has now watched her own girls developed a passion for dance over the past 13 years. Justina has owned various home based businesses throughout the years. With the idea of one day of having an actual store front, Justina decided to open her own studio. She was spurred on because she felt that there needs to be a better balance between helping each student excel and also having an environment that nurtures, encourages, and helps build confidence. She wanted to open a place that does all these things. Justina wants her children & students to enjoy the passion for dance and come in and out of each class feeling positive. When Justina is not at the dance studio, and working on day to day business, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Jim, and their three children: Alyssa, Vincent and Sabrina. It has always been Justina’s dream to own her own dance studio. She wanted to make sure she could have a staff that shares the same values and passions, and she has accomplished that.
