Dancing has been a major part of Gilda’s life for over 20 years. At the early age of 3 she showed a love of music and movement. As a young adult she followed her passion to start a professional career with Arthur Murray Dance Studios. Her dream to be a professional ballroom dance competitor led her to transfer within the company to New York City where she studied with many acclaimed professionals, including the current World Latin Champions. Gilda has also been certified through the National Dance Council of America (NDCA) which is an establishment and maintenance of high standards in dance education and to recognize the status of qualified dance instructors.
Although dancing and music have been the underlying motivation for her success and professional development, she has discovered a burning desire to teach and share her passion with others! This desire, coupled with 12 years experience managing and teaching for Arthur Murray Dance Studios in New Orleans, New York and Dallas fueled the launch of Ballroom Surge Dance Studio.
As a former performance coach for the well acclaimed Dale Carnegie Institute, she gained the expertise to implement solutions for corporations and small businesses through increasing profit, customer service, and team development.
This business experience and her time spent as a professional ballroom competitor in both the Latin and Smooth divisions provide her with the knowledge and experience in both the social and competitive worlds of dancing. Gilda is committed to provide professional, quality customer service and dance instruction to people of all ages!
Through Ballroom Surge Dance Studio, she is able to choreograph for children and youth groups; produce shows and flash mob demonstrations; develop unique team building opportunities for corporations and use personalized private instruction for adult couples and singles. Gilda is determined to succeed in introducing the powerful, life-changing emotional, mental and physical benefits of dance to the masses!
Ballroom Surge Dance Studio is the realization of one woman’s dream to share her passion with the world!
