is intended to serve the information needs for our students
and for those interested in learning more about partner dancing
and mind-body wellness.
I opened my studio in October of 1988. I started teaching ballroom dance
professionally back in 1984. Before that I taught ballet,
jazz, modern, acrobatics, and other types of theatrical dance. In 1999,
I began teaching workshops in mind-body practice. This was
mainly due to my personal experience with healing the body,
and it just seemed like the logical next step in my work.
the most satisfying thing about my work is that there's always
something new and different to explore. Every student is different,
every class is different, every subject is different; and
yet, it's all about the same thing: discovering
a more meaningful version of who we are.
I hope you find
this website helpful. I also hope you visit our studio sometime soon. Certainly, I hope to have you in a class
of mine someday.
The lessons we learn about ourselves through the experience of
becoming dancers will apply to all areas of our lives. Likewise,
our life lessons can be expressed through dance. Becoming
a dancer is all about transformation. It is a call to empowerment." Wanda Deagen
