Word on the Street about Cameron
"Me and my now Husband went to Dance Sport VA and worked with Cameron to learn our first dance choreography. Neither of us had prior ballroom dance experience, but Cameron made us feel confident and comfortable throughout the whole process. By the end of learning all of the choreography we both felt like actual dancers! We had such an amazing time that both of us want to continue learning ballroom together."
