Queen City Ballroom
Though competitive ballroom dancer Dana Glandon spends much of her time preparing for and winning national dance championships, she's still found the time to establish several dance studios. Drawing from more than 20 years of dance experience, she joins Tony Prado—a WDC World Pro-Am finalist, stage performer, and tango dancer commended by the USTA—in coaching students of all skill levels at Queen City Ballroom. Through detail-oriented instruction and customized lesson plans, they and their instructors give customers personalized attention, earning accolades as one of Charlotte's best ballroom dance studios from CBS Charlotte. During classes, instructors teach basic techniques of leading and following before moving on to specific steps. Students may learn Latin dances such as salsa, bolero, and merengue; ballroom dances such as foxtrot, Argentine tango, and Viennese waltz; and social dances such as swing, hustle, and two-step. While well versed in the language of dance, the instructors also speak 10 other languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Ukrainian, and Slovakian.
