Meet Larinda

She began her professional career in Ballroom Dancing at the age of 19, a sophomore in college, right here in Missouri.

 

While pursuing her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Theatre and Stage Performance she, by total chance, met a Ballroom Dancer. He showed her the first "Rock Step Cha Cha Cha" in a nightclub.  She knew she was hooked, and her life then took an unexpected turn.  Her goal was to finish up college and figure out how to make it in the amazing world of dancing.  

 

After 20 years of professional dancing around North America and teaching on the east coast, she returned home to Jefferson City.
