Freddie Ciampi III
Freddie’s love of dancing began when he joined a performing arts group in college, which led him on tours throughout the US and Europe. After receiving his B.S. in business administration, his interest turned to ballroom dance by way of a newspaper ad: “Dance Instructors Wanted – Will Train.”
After teaching in dance studios in Salem, Virginia, and Omaha, Nebraska, Freddie decided to start his own studio here in Berryville. As a division of The Blue Ridge Studio for the Performing Arts, Freddie’s clientele grew steadily until it was necessary to relocate to a larger space.
At Social Graces Studio, Freddie’s enthusiasm, humor, and emphasis on fun have continued to inspire people of all ages to put on their dancing shoes.
