- Are you a bridal couple looking for a special wedding dance?
- Is there a family wedding on the horizon and you want to dance?
- Are you new to the area and looking to meet new people?
These are some of the reasons people reach out to Ballroom Made Simple. I am a certified (DVIDA) Jr. Associate ballroom dance instructor in Salisbury, Maryland. I teach beginner Level I & Beyond the Basics group classes, plus private and wedding dance lessons for ages 16 +.
My specialty is teaching ordinary people the art of social/partner dancing. I would love the opportunity to share my dance experience and training with you! Let Ballroom Made Simple help you reach your social ballroom dancing goals.
I am a charter member and past president of USA Dance Ballroom Dance Chapter 6098, Eastern Shore of Maryland. I was introduced to ballroom dancing in 2005 and fell in love with it! In 2007, I began training to teach beginner ballroom dance lessons. In April 2008 I opened the doors of Ballroom Made Simple and have been teaching group and private ballroom dance lessons ever since! I specialize in teaching beginners the 6 core dances in American Smooth & Rhythm dance styles including: Foxtrot, Slow Waltz, American Tango, East Coast Swing, Rumba, Cha Cha Cha. I also teach the fun club dances such as Merengue, Bachata, Salsa and Samba. I am currently working toward my DVIDA Junior Associate Instructor training. I have completed Rumba, Cha Cha Cha, East Coast Swing, Slow Waltz, and Foxtrot.
In 2009 I met and danced with Champion Latin/Ballroom Dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy! Need I say more 🙂
In 2009, 2010, and 2011, I performed in the local fundraiser, Dancing With Delmarva Stars.
In the summer of 2010 I opened my Ballroom Made Simple Dance Studio. I loved having a space to call “home” for my classes. After three years I outgrew that space and moved my Thursday night group classes to the Salisbury Wicomico Senior Services Center. Students have plenty of room to move and groove! It’s located at 909 Progress Circle, Salisbury, MD (behind the Holly Center on Snow Hill Road). My second home (on Saturdays) is Olympia Fitness Club in Salisbury where I teach private lessons, workshops and SOLO Ballroom line dance classes.
Through private training, I’ve had the opportunity to take lessons with a variety of professional level dancers. I strive to help new dancers acquire a polished look on the dance floor and help them avoid developing bad dance habits. Helping students become good dance leaders and followers is always a goal.
My weekly group class (Level I) is held on Thursday nights. These are typically 6-week sessions and help new dancers build a foundation of dance steps, styling and technique so that they will be comfortable attending local social ballroom dances. Beginner Level 2 classes are offered for those who want to continue learning new figures. Book your lesson today – call 443-783-3060.
