Dear Fellow Dancers,

Your health and well-being is always our highest priority. Therefore, we have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus COVID-19 and following the information and guidelines of the CDC, the NJ Dept. of Health, the regional Westfield Dept. of Health and of course, the City of Summit.

If we work together, we can help mitigate the spread of any respiratory virus, including 2019-nCoV. Here are a few of the extra steps we have taken:

•    Since frequent handwashing (and keeping hands away from the eyes, nose and mouth) is the most effective preventative measure, we should encourage and remind each other practicing this good hygiene habit!

•    We will continue to ensure a constant supply of hand sanitizers (70% alcohol content), Lysol wipes and tissues are available throughout the studio!

For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website

We ask you to help keep yourself and our community healthy by following the CDC’s prevention guidelines. As always, you or any family member should stay home if feeling unwell.

Finally, it is important to obtain accurate and current information from credible sources:

•    The New Jersey Department of Health has opened a hotline (1-800-222-1222) for the public to ask questions about the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

•    CDC.gov/COVID19

•    City of Summit

We will continue to be in contact with local, state and federal health departments.  Will keep you posted!

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you in our studio!

Sergei and Olga

Charlotte Jorgensen was on the very first season of Dancing With The Stars, and she was partnered with John O’Hurley. They went to the finals and ultimately lost out to Kelly Monaco and Alec Mazo. 2005+Creative+Arts+Emmy+Awards+Arrivals+XhUIDpInKu7l 199x300 Master Classes with Charlotte Jorgensen!There was quite a bit of talk that Charlotte and John actually deserved to win so after the competition was over ABC aired a “dance-off” between the two teams and in the end, Charlotte and John were victorious. 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.
