Charl Washington aka "Mr. Ballroom" got serious about dancing in 1991 and was invited to attend the prestigious Detroit School of the Fine and Performing Arts. It is there that he developed a passion for Ballroom Dancing and the rest is history. Mr. Ballroom incorporates traditional foundation in his ballroom lessons but gives each dance his own flair and is well known for his charismatic personality and fun teaching style. Whether you attend one of his weekly ballroom dancing classes or choose to take private dancing lessons you're sure to leave with a smile on your face and some serious dancing mojo. Be sure to ask him about "Soulsa," the new style of ballroom dancing he came up with to fit modern times.
