The Scarlet Ball

Thousands of people across the country are discovering the joy of dressing up Victorian-style and dancing the steps of generations past. Many of them are experiencing this for the first time with Sharon and Mike Guli, of River Crossing Inc. Sharon brings to each ballroom a pleasant and lively mix of both the old and the new -- historically-correct vintage pieces, simplified versions that are easier for modern, untrained folks, and a few contemporary selections that maintain the flavor and feel of Victorian times. During breaks in the music, she shares entertaining information on the history of the dances and the etiquette of this bygone era.

While preserving this piece of our American past, Sharon keeps things relaxed with light banter, an eagerness to encourage the novice, and a clear, easy way of explaining the steps so all can understand and participate. As she leads from the stage, Mike moves among the dancers in his role of Floor Manager, helping folks get situated into the proper formations, finding partners for single ladies, and educating people on how to tell their right hand from their left. Sharon is skilled at teaching people of all ages and abilities, and the growing demand for her unique talents as a dance instructor have taken them to events across the United States and Europe.

Sharon is a delightful, entertaining instructor. Not only is she very skilled and knowledgeable, it is also obvious that she is eager to make sure that everyone enjoys themselves.”    -- Darrell Osburn Director/Producer, You Can Live History
