True Reflections Dance & Fitness A truly positive experience for all ages, shapes and sizes


Meet Shana Groeneveld, the dynamic, multi-talented and energetic owner of True Reflections Dance & Fitness studio. By night, Shana is a Cranston Police officer whose boundless energy is focused on upholding the law. But by day, Shana is the encouraging, creative and positive "life force" behind this newly opened studio in Warwick. Fulfilling a lifelong dream, Shana literally built this studio with her own style and hands (with the help of some loyal friends!), and now invites exercise lovers everywhere to come in and share her passion.True Reflections Dance & Fitness studio is inspired by Shana's philosophy that we decide the direction of our own lives; indeed, she claims that "Life isn't about finding yourself, Life is about creating yourself". An illustration graces her wall which shows a cygnet gazing at the swan she will someday become. Shana wants all those who enter her studio to see a vision of who they are and who they are meant to be, and not the artificial, TV-land version of themselves that modern media would have us see. Bottom line, at True Reflections studio - ONLY POSITIVE THINKING is allowed.
