Meet our Instructors
Georgia Grace, CEO/Founder, Instructor, Performer
I’m a ballerina gone wild!I have sixteen-plus years of dance experience under my belt, including training at San Francisco Ballet School and the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, performing professionally in the Charleston area, and teaching multiple dance modalities since 2009. I don’t know where my love of Latin dance comes from…maybe it was listening to Gloria Estefan and Santana during Saturday morning chores, or maybe just because Latin music and dance are addicting.I started Salsa dancing in 2010 and fell in love with it, traveling to other cities, states, and countries to follow my passion and having a chance to study under internationally-renowned artists.
