Ballroom and Latin/Salsa
With more than 40 years experience as a professional dancer, teacher trainer and choreographer in the field of ballroom and latin dancing, Rosemary Parker will bring to the school a level of expertise that will benefit adults as well and any young persons interested in these areas of learning. In Long Island New York, Rosemary owned and operated simultaneously three ballroom studios. She trained staff and brought in International and American ballroom dance champions to further the professionalism of her staff. Many of Rosemary’s students and teachers went on to enter the American Ballroom Dance Championships viewed on PBS. Rosemary was invited to teach often for the Dance Educators of America and to choreograph for local dance competitions for her dance teaching staff.
