This did not change the fact that Kelly was credited as the first season winner. Charlotte and John later put out an instructional dance DVD together that was well received.

 Master Classes with Charlotte Jorgensen!Charlotte was born in Denmark and began to dance at the age of two. When she was 10 she took up ballet and had hopes of a stage career in dance. After moving to the U.S. she took up ballroom and Latin dance, becoming Amateur Teen Dance Champion within 3 years. At 22 she became World Amateur Champion, and then turned professional. In her first pro year, she won the Professional Rising Star in Blackpool, England. She then partnered with Andrew Sinkinson and together they were both very successful placing second at many National and World competitions.

Charlotte has connections to film as well. In 2003, she was hired by Miramax to coach actor Richard Gere for his role in Shall We Dance?. She also was asked to be an adjudicator for the final competition in the documentary Mad Hot Ballroom, where inner city children in New York compete in ballroom dancing.
