About Chuck

Chuck Wills began his dancing career by entering disco contests with his sister. Together they won a number of awards, and by being seen in these contests, he was sought out by an Arthur Murray representative who invited him to train with them.
After completing training with Arthur Murray, Chuck moved to a local Fred Astaire studio where he continued his work on honing his dancing skills. After several years in the Tidewater area, Chuck moved to the Orlando, Florida area where he taught at a Fred Astaire studio. In subsequent years he was recruited to teach in studios in Texas, Colorado, and Beverly Hills. Chuck has owned and operated two independent studios in the Tidewater area – one in Yorktown and one in Virginia Beach.
Throughout his dancing career Chuck has focused on combining the technical aspects dancing with expression through the music. He prides himself on helping his students look confident on the floor. He is currently an instructor at Rants Ballroom Company in Virginia Beach. He is equally adept at working with individual students as well as couples.
Chuck brings his dancing experience to bear on his work as a DJ for weddings and special events. He is often complimented for his courteous and organized approach to each event.

About Sarah

Sarah grew up in Detroit and had a love for gymnastics and dance early on. She studied modern dance at the University of Michigan for a couple of years before trying to make “a go of it” in New York City. Her time in the Big Apple was filled with great experiences studying dance, performing in small modern dance companies and waiting on a lot of tables to pay the bills! After deciding she was not going to “make it” as a dancer, she eventually ended up in Virginia Beach and went back to school earning her B.S. in Computer Engineering at ODU. Currently Sarah serves as Chief Administrative Officer of The GBS Group (GBS), a systems engineering, technology integration and reliability engineering services company. Outside of GBS, Sarah is proud mom to sons Samuel and Aaron, supports ODU as well as helping to raise support for Samaritan House. Sarah is excited to be back in a dance studio again and has enjoyed dusting off some very rusty dancing feet for a very worthy cause!
