Charley is a Dance Vision International Dance Association (DVIDA) certified dance instructor and has enjoyed and participated in many aspects of ballroom dancing for over fourteen years. Initially she was attracted to ballroom dancing as a great way to increase her social activities. She soon found that she wanted to share with others the benefits (fitness, social contact, and pure joy) that ballroom dancing has brought her. She has used this desire over the past six years by assisting with the instruction and facilitation of group and private classes, and by gaining a thorough understanding of both the DVIDA and Fred Astaire Syllabus. Charley studies with Diane Jarmalow, the foremost teacher’s teacher in the United States and the founder of the Ballroom Dance Teachers College.
Charley has promoted, choreographed and staged a number of dance performances in the area. One of her favorite activities is to take dance to the community. Charley’s goal and mission is to share, with as many people as she can, the joy, pleasure, and social warmth that ballroom dancing brings.
Group Classes are both an introduction to the experience of dancing with different partners and an opportunity for students to become familiar with a variety of step patterns. Partner rotation during the classes allows dancers to practice steps with a variety of partners. Group Classes promote comfort in dancing, learning lead and follow techniques, and the camaraderie of a new experience.
Private Lessons offer students the best value for their investment. With Private Lessons, the student works one-on-one with the instructor, receiving personalized instruction and immediate correction and encouragement. Through experiencing the physical awareness of connected movement, memory muscles will take the student to the next level of confidence with themselves and with other partners. In learning through the one-on-one method, both beginning and advanced students will find they progress faster and easier, as they enjoy the connection of partner ballroom dancing.
Your first dance as Husband and Wife – A Special Gift and a Moment to Remember Forever!
Your wedding day is important, and I want to help you make your first dance an everlasting expression of love and commitment and a memory you will cherish forever. I can help you plan a wedding dance program that will be an expression of elegance, style and grace. My assistance can include helping you to select your dance and music, as well as choreographing a complete routine for your dance. Additionally, I can help with Father and Daughter, Mother and Son, and Wedding Group dances.
Community Outreach: Group classes conducted outside of my dance studio at your facility. For groups of 10 or more that would like the convenience of learning to dance in their own surroundings.
Events: Are you planning a special event? Would you like to have your event sparkle with the addition of good music and dancing? I specialize in helping to create fun, exciting and memorable events.
Partners: Partners are not required. However, Ballroom Dance Reno will not provide partners for any dancers. Instructors encourage all dancers to rotate partners. Instructors will dance with students throughout the sessions to encourage proper frame and lead/follow.
