James williams,  choreographer 

Welcome to The Dance Company, my name is James Williams, Owner and Social Dance Instructor. I started my dance career with the Fred Astaire Organization in Winston Salem, North Carolina. I was with Fred Astaire for approximately 15 years. When I started training there I found it hard to keep up with the rest of my peers and was almost removed from the training classes. As a result, I started working as hard as I could and kept many long hours after the studio had closed. Little did I know that being a slow learner would become one of the best things that could happen to me. Let me explain. Most of you have heard at some time, “If life hands you Lemons just make lemonade”. This learning problem that I had was never forgotten and as a result I was blessed with what some of my students have expressed, the patience of job when teaching. It doesn't matter how many times we have to repeat steps as long as we get them in the end.

            After leaving Fred Astaire went on to train at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.   Training is wonderful however nothing prepares you more that practical experience and that is my greatest asset. I try and make my classes a learning experience but “fun” as well. 

            Most of you have heard that dancing is a wonderful way to exercise our physical bodies but our minds as well.  I am living proof of this, in that I have gone through three major Spinal Surgeries the last two had threatened my ability to walk not to mention dance. Dr. Paul Kim, with Carolina Neurosurgery and Spine has labeled me “A Walking/Dancing Poster Boy” for spinal surgeries having the fastest recovery of any of his other patients that are half my age. I attribute my recovery to God as well as dance.  It does however prove that dancing is one of the best things that you can do for your physical well-being.

I invite you to come in and join us today
