About Clara Formoso, Owner of By the Sea

Clara FormosoI come from a family of natural dancers.  I have been dancing all my life. Started as a child taught by my father.

My professional career began with The Arthur Murray Studio in Red Bank, NJ.  I won numerous teaching awards, and also created three Hustle Step lists for Arthur Murray Studio and trained their Teachers.

I danced in TV commercials, a Muscular Dystrophy TV Fundraiser, Fashion Shows and on stage.  I have choreographed dance routines for My Fair Lady and The Secret Garden, 2 plays performed in local theater.

My own dance students were used for the ballroom scene in My Fair Lady.  I performed on New Year's eve in the Show King of Swing at Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ.

I love to teach!  Recently I choreographed a Disco Routine for a young man with down syndrome by the name of David who took 2nd place in a dance competition.  I trained and choreographed an Argentine Tango for a Miss Latina Pageant contestant, who went on to win the Pageant.

I would love the chance to meet you and share my love of dance with you.  Click here to Contact Us Today!

Ramona Nicolae, Instructor

Ramona Nicolae's passion for dance originated in Romania where she was born and raised. Ramona relocated to the United States in 2008. She fell in love with the hula hoop very soon after and there was no looking back. The belly dancing followed as the moves for both dances go hand in hand. Ramona started by teaching private classes in Myrtle Beach and also group classes at a yoga studio in North Myrtle Beach.

Now she teaches this fun class at By the Sea Ballroom & Latin Dance Studio every Sunday at 3 pm!

Allow Ramona to bring a good work out dance routine to your weekend that will energize you and get you in shape!
