While most of the other instructors at Dance Charisma began dancing as children, the center's director, Nancy Nies, took a different approach in life. A lawyer, she served as a judge-advocate general in the Air Force, and didn't start dancing until her mid 30s. But once she started, she fell in love with the art form and began training with national dance champions, eventually medaling at the US Dance Championships.
Her path proves that anyone passionate about dancing can learn, so she began Dance Charisma, where youths and adults gather to learn dances as varied as salsa, swing, and waltz. No partner is necessary, but couples can take lessons to make a splash during their wedding. Those without wedding receptions to show off their newly learned moves can come to the weekly dance parties, where dancers with all levels of experience practice and socialize.
