Roger and Trish Triplett, Directors of the Triplett Dance Academy, have established a studio that reflects their years of stage experience and dance training. Trish and Roger met while attending Butler University in Indianapolis where they received Bachelor of Arts degrees with honors.  As students, they performed with the Indianapolis Ballet Theater and at the inauguration of the Governor. They were soloists with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater for five years and toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada. During the ballet off season, the couple performed at the Cincinnati Summer Opera with opera greats. They appeared as guest artists with regional dance companies and symphony orchestras, and they are both long-time members of Dance Masters of America and AGMA.

Trish, a Burlington County native, performed with the Princeton Ballet; received an apprenticeship with the Joffrey Ballet, and was a scholarship student with Pennsylvania Ballet, all while in high school.  After her  performing career, she received a Temple University graduate assistantship, where she instructed advanced ballet classes. She has also served on the faculty of the Princeton Ballet School and developed the Perkins Center’s dance program. Trish has been a guest teacher and judge for major dance organizations.

Roger performed for five years with the prestigious Pennsylvania Ballet. His musical theater experience includes extensive Equity productions. He was twice elected to the Board of Governors of the American Guild of Musical Artists, AGMA, and he has been on the faculty of the Pennsylvania Ballet, Princeton Ballet and the University of South Florida. He is sought after as a guest teacher and competition judge for major national dance organizations. He was guest teacher at Groupe Internationale des 8 in Perpignan, France, and he has a reputation of being a “dance teacher’s teacher.”
