Ramona has been instructing ballroom dance in since 1982. She began her training in Ballroom at Fred Astaire studios here in Tucson before she taught in California and Nevada. She taught at a college in the San Fernando Valley and then in Laughlin, Nevada. However, now that she is back in Tucson she is ready to teach American and International Smooth; American Rhythm; Country; and Salsa. Ramona loves choreographing for showcases, weddings, cotillions, and competitive routines. She says that she loves teaching both adults and juniors, and traveling with them around the country to participate in Dancesport competitions. The DanceCatz, a Junior Performance & Competitive Dance team, is a product of her passion to choreograph and compete. Ramona founded and directs the team, which have successfully won first place many times since the birth of the group. She also loves participating in community events like "Dancing With Our Stars", an annual local fundraiser dance event that benefits the Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona. She has participated in it since its inception and plans on participating in it again this year.
