Clarissa has been dancing since she was six years old, but it was an ad for a ballroom dance instructor that finally brought her back around to ballroom dance. Prior to teaching ballroom, she received her black belt in Tae Kwon Do in 2007, and worked as an instructor since 2006. She had always wanted to work in the field of dance, but had never found a suitable place until finding Social Graces. Her particular specialties include an expert sense of timing and rhythm, as well as a fine eye for creative choreography. Clarissa is very happy with how things turned out and hopes to continue to teach and improve in her own dancing for a long time to come.
