Michele DeRosa


Michele, a native of Cherry Hill, N.J., moved to South Florida in 1977, and danced seriously for the 1st time in 1989. She enjoyed it so much that she immediately signed up for private lessons & in less than 6 months, she placed 2nd, out of 10 couples, in Waltz & Cha Cha, at her first Pro-Am competition. The dance world had her hook, line and sinker. She then went on to compete in a couple other divisions over the next few years. In 1992 she taught her 1st group class and has continued teaching throughout the country. She doesn’t care if you’re slow on your feet, can’t see your feet or even if you have two left feet. Her motto is “if you can walk, you can dance.” In 1998 while practicing her west coast swing routine for a Division One Country Competition, she fell in love with WCS and for the next year she and her partner went on to do many shows with their winning routine. In 2009, through collaboration with Jerry Siebe and a very dear friend, the idea of the Ft Lauderdale Swing and Shag Beach Bash was made born and made into a reality. She is proud to say, it is now going on its 10th year. In 2010 she rec’d her certification in the DVIDA Ballroom Bronze program. Thanks to the tutelage of Ashley & Tobitha Stewart, in 2014 she became partners with Sammy Clelland. Together they won 2014 Non Professional Shag division at The USA Grand Nationals and many Novice Divisions throughout the year in the Competitive Shaggers Association (CSA). They are now competing in the Professional Division. In 2015 they competed at the Shag Nationals Dance Champions Professional Division in N Myrtle Beach SC and came in 5th place and 6th at the USA Grand Nationals. In pursuing her love of dance, Michele is enjoying the chance to meet new people and continuing to keep in touch with some wonderful people she now calls family.

A few of her other accomplishments include many diverse things such as: Co-Event Director of Ft Lauderdale Swing & Shag Beach Bash, 2nd place Smoothies Division at SOS, 1st place Jack n’ Jill Atlanta Shag Christmas Party, DVIDA certified, placing and winning many Jack n’ Jill’s & strictly swing comps, competed in Pro-Am both with teachers & students, UCWDC Division 1, WCS Classic Division, participating & Co-choreographer for a #1 WCS dance team, choreographed many popular line dances, and in 2012 was inducted into the Nat’l Living Legends of Dance.

Please come ask me for a dance so that I may continue to add to my already blessed dance family, I look forward to seeing you on the dance floor
