Charee Romo has always had a strong passion for dance. She started dancing at a young age, taking her first Ballet class at 6 years old. At the age of 14, Charee had the exciting opportunity to take classes with a newly retired Broadway Choreographer from LA, where she trained in a number of dance styles including Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Contemporary. After two years, she started to assist in teaching younger kids and found a love for working with children. After becoming a mom, Charee made the decision to put her daughter into dance. She enrolled all four of them in their first classes the moment they could walk. Soon after, she became a comp mom and has been for the past 24 years. It was when Charee started teaching dance to the kids at her daughter's school, choreographing their Christmas shows each year, that her joy of teaching was rekindled. This inspired her to open a dance studio that she successfully ran for over a decade. By the 8th year, her studio had tripled in size, having multiple successful competitive groups that would go on to win several high-placing trophies, medals and awards including several choreography awards. The studio attended many competitions throughout the years, including multiple away trips, as it was very important that the dancers got as many opportunities as they could perform. Charee not only wanted her dancers to get the chance to
compete, but to also perform at community/special events including Broadway’s Singing Christmas Tree, Christmas Extravaganza at Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Canada Day Celebration at the Pacific Colosseum, B.C. Movie Leo Awards, multiple Christmas/Easter performances and working with Ivivva and Lululemon as their hype team. Charee and her family made the decision to move to Niagara Falls three years ago when a new opportunity came arose that would allow the dance studio to grow. She is so excited to share her passion and love for the arts with everyone here in the Niagara Region.
