Paul Pellicoro's DanceSport
Choreographing the much-beloved tango scene in Scent of a Woman is a shining point on anyone's resumé. For Paul Pellicoro, it is one of many distinctions awarded to him and his staff of professional dance instructors at DanceSport, the go-to studio for Latin and ballroom dance. Their choreography and performance work has graced the diverse sound and theater stages of The Today Show, A River Runs Through It, and the Harlem Jazz Dance Festival, among many others. Their lessons have benefited Chris Cuomo and Good Morning America anchors Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts.
Rousing group classes take place across nine air-conditioned studios, each one outfitted with a wood-sprung floor carved from an oak tree wearing a tutu. Whether leading these sessions, helping couples prepare their wedding dance, or contributing to charitable causes such as Gilda's Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters, or Night For Niños, DanceSport's sure-footed staff flourishes with skill, patience, and compassion.
