CSDS is thrilled to host Tara Trafzer in Charlottesville! Tara is from California and competes in the Champions level; she and her routine partner Christopher Dumond are a force to be reckoned with in Classic Division. You can see her/them in action here:
Tara works out of Atomic Ballroom in Irvine, DanScene Dance Studio in Costa Mesa, California, and at Buddy Schwimmer’s studio, The Dance Center in Redlands, California. Tara has been dancing in a wide range of styles from jazz and ballet to swing and ball room since she was a child. After graduating from University of California Berkley, she returned to southern California to continue her career as a professional dance instructor.
