Renoux Dance Studio,
was part of the Lindendare legacy, and a distinguished part of Portland's artistic community for over 50 years. By 1960, it was one of the top 5 studios in Portland. The studio was one of the most spacious, located on corner of Burnside, across from Powell's Bookstore. The studio was started by Miss Marcelle Renoux. She studied with the Lindendare School and others. Many of her students went on to seek professional careers. Debra Messenger, of Portland’s Messenger Dance School, studied with Miss Renoux.
When Miss Renoux died, the studio was turned over to the dedicated hands of Christina Hintz. Christina began her training with Miss Renoux, traveled to Canada for advanced study under dancers from the National Ballet of Canada, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and Royal Ballet of England. Christina Hintz operated Renoux School of Dance for decades.
