The Ballroom Co.
Before opening The Ballroom Company with her husband and fellow dance instructor David Myrice, championship ballroom dancer Jacki trained under world-renowned dancers including Sam Sodano and Shirley Ballas. Well-versed in a range of ballroom-dancing styles—and the recipient of a Mid-West Professional American dance title in 2009—she spends many weekends in the studio leading group and private dance lessons. Under the tutelage of the studio’s instructors, students of all ages and skill levels can master the rhythms of dances such as the cha-cha, the tango, the waltz, and the rumba. Rotating instructors also lead first-dance seminars for newlyweds. Friday-night dance parties, which run from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m., provide a fun break from typical Friday-night routines, such as counting the number of pixels on your television screen.
