Teresa's favorite things to choreograph:
* Theater Arts routine with lifts and tricks
* Group routines, whether amateur or professional
* Wedding Dances
Teresa began dancing at the age of five. Ten years of strict ballet left her hungry for more fun and less painful pointe work. She changed instructors and fell in love with Jazz and Modern. At age sixteen, she had the honor of attending Governor’s School of N.C. in the area of Modern dance. Teresa also received a N.C. Teaching Fellows Scholarship for dance.
While attending N.C. State University School of Design, she missed dancing and called a local ballroom studio to inquire about taking lessons. As luck would have it, at age eighteen Teresa became an instructor instead of a student (which was her true calling given that she had been “teaching” aerobics and dance routines since high school.)
After only one year of ballroom training, Teresa was chosen to partner a nationally renowned dancer. In a classic case of “the road not taken”, she left behind her college days and fun times Dirty Dancing with her fellow dance instructors to begin training competitively in Phoenix, AZ.
Teresa’s competitive accomplishments include:
- U.S. Professional Rhythm Champion and U.S. National Top Six Finalist, 1989-1991
- Chosen to participate in a goodwill dance tour in Russia. Traveled and performed for two weeks in Moscow and St. Petersburg, October, 1991
- U.S. Professional Rising Star Theater Arts Champion, 1994, and Open Top Six Finalist, 1993-1995
- Performed in the American Pavilion at Epcot Center in Orlando, Florida, 1994
