Dance instructor accused of sexually abusing student

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - "I feel very hurt, I'm disgusted, I feel betrayed," said the victim's mother, who does not want to be identified.

She says her 15-year-old daughter was sexually assaulted by a dance instructor they trusted, 28-year-old Terrance Andei Fizer.

Fizer was arrested and investigators say he admitted to having sex with the teen student and knew it was wrong.

"Most of all, my daughter's the one that's hurting more and she's the one who is going to have to live with this the rest of her life unfortunately."

Fizer is an instructor at Bricks Dance Studio in central Phoenix.  That's where he met the victim.

A dance instructor in Phoenix has been arrested -- accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

The victim's mother says she found out about the alleged sexual assault after finding text messages between her daughter and Fizer.

Police say last month, Fizer took the teen to his house and had sex with her -- just a few weeks after she turned 15.

"Being a role model, the kids look up to him.  They want to do the things that he does and he's close with them.  These kids have been in his class several years," said the mother.

She adds that Fizer is a popular dance instructor here in the valley and teaches at two other studios.

Police say during their investigation, Fizer also admitted to having sex with a 16-year-old girl six years ago.

"I just think the parents need to make sure that the conversations and the acts have all been appropriate.  There's not been any phone calls or text messaging or social media," said the mother.
