Sandra Cameron, a three-time United States Professional Ballroom Champion (1976, 1977, 1978), opened the Sandra Cameron Dance Center in 1980. Born and raised in Scotland, Ms. Cameron immigrated to the United States in 1970, settling in New York in 1975. Since retiring from competition dancing, she and her husband, Larry Schulz, have been fascinated by the rich traditions of social dance. They are committed to preserving classic dances like Savoy Lindy Hop and Argentine Tango and teaching contemporary dances like Salsa in their most authentic form. The studio played a major role in the Swing revival by luring Savoy Ballroom greats Al Minns and Frankie Manning out of retirement. The Sandra Cameron Dance Center was also the first New York dance studio to offer classes in Argentine Tango, sparking a renaissance in Buenos Aires's signature dance.
For 30 years the Sandra Cameron Dance Center has been a major innovator and influential trendsetter on the Ballroom dance scene in New York City. Today, the studio offers 23 classes a week in social dancing from Basic to Advanced level.
