Trish Berlanga fell in love with dance when she walked into the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in her hometown of Flint Michigan. She was quickly recruited by Fred Astaire Studio in Stuart, Fl. Her first title was Fred Astaire American Rhythm Rising Star Champion. While at Fred Astaire, Trish earned her teaching certification in American Style Smooth and Rhythm.
In 1997, Trish was bitten by West Coast Swing bug in a Country Night Club in West Palm Beach, FL, where she currently resides. She has been traveling and competing in the Swing Circuit ever since, and recently achieved All-Star status.
You can find Trish spreading her love of dance in the entire South Florida area teaching private and group classes in Palm Beach and Broward Counties.
In 2001 Mark Traynor, owner of Floorplay Dance Club of Orlando asked Trish to become the Floorplay Swing Club Director, and partnered with her to bring a monthly dance to Jupiter Fl. And as such, Trish helped develop West Coast Swing in Northern Palm Beach County.
She has earned many dance titles throughout her career, but the more important goal has always been to share her knowledge and love of dance to as many people as possible. If you see Trish on the social dance floor, don’t hesitate to ask her to dance!
