Ellen Russell Marshall
Off Broadway Dance

Ellen Russell Marshall is the owner of the Off Broadway Dance Center.

She is also the owner of the dance instruction center in Fulton where she performs all executive duties. Marshall, 37, is also a Sunday School teacher and on the lay leadership team at the Fulton First United Methodist Church.

She received a bachelor’s degree in business distributive education from SUNY Oswego. In her current position, she teaches an average of 200 students per year in jazz/hip-hop, tap, lyrical and pre-school dance classes. “My students have been asked to dance at Disney World on two different occasions,” Marshall said. “They have also participated in many dance competitions receiving several ‘high score’ awards.”

Marshall takes great pride in the ability to maintain a business that could be considered unnecessary in times of economic hardships. “It is a nice to offer a service that people enjoy and are willing to sacrifice for,” Marshall said about the Off Broadway Dance Center. As for the most rewarding aspect of her profession, Marshall finds this to be the ability to closely work with children. “I love teaching kids and I love to dance,” Marshall said. “It’s my privilege to work with my wonderful students.” “They teach me as much as I teach them,” she added about her students.
