Monica has owned and operated leading national franchised dance studios since 1991. She has held several national and regional dance titles. She has also held many top teacher of the year awards.  She and her husband Jaime were local franchisees from 1993 until 2006 when the chose to sell their franchise and pursue other interests.  They maintained their partnership as Area Franchisors in the state of South Carolina when they decided to open as the Carolina Dancesport, where the sold the remaining interest in the 4 studios still operating in the state.  As they describe it ” it was one of the most liberating days in our lives”!  “Finally we can teach the students to their full potential without having to worry about sticking to the constrictors of a governing body that doesn’t have any interest in our client base beyond collecting royalty fees”!
