Lodi native Ronna Roberts has been involved in dance and ballet for most of her life. She was an active child who found a creative outlet as a fine artist and even in things like sailing, diving, music and swimming. By pushing herself in dance, she learned what she is capable of, including pushing herself to dance after doctors said she might not ever walk after a bad car accident.
Now, Roberts helps run IBTI (International Ballet Theater Institute) Arch Studio for Integrated Arts in Downtown Lodi. The upstairs studio has two parts: IBTI and Studio A. Both have professional dance floors for practice and performances.
