About A Chat with Sonny Perry Dance Nashville
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I have consistently been in the teaching business for 17 years. I'm certified in the instruction of ballroom, Latin, swing, salsa, tango, and country western. I made US history as a competitor in Latin, and I've taught at the University of Southern California, Santa Monica College, and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Just stand up straight and enjoy yourself while you move through my method.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Danced as a child. Saw this particular style on PBS, fell in love all the way to the US finals, and completed certification as an instructor.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to teach. I love the joy of providing fun as well as results.
