Terra Summers has been dancing for over 20 years, with her experience starting in theater and musicals as a young girl, followed by cheer and poms in her teens, her passion for music grew throughout the years.
As a teenager, her love for music & dance evolved into partner dancing starting in the country scene. She began teaching line dancing which led her to expand her horizons of partner dancing. Terra quickly became involved in West Coast Swing throughout Colorado and then soon throughout the country.
Terra currently competes at the All-Star level on the WSDC circuit. She has won numerous titles for the National Association of Swing Dance Events, and other sanctioned World Swing Dance Council events across the country. She has ran and judged many events over the years and continues to work, teaching and sharing the love of dance with her community. Her passion and enthusiasm for teaching is contagious and loved by her students, while her friendly and outgoing personality makes learning from her fun and achievable.
Terra has been teaching WCS for over 12 years and is currently training in ballroom Latin and Smooth dances. Planning to be certified by September 2024, Terra is excited for this next chapter of dance and teaching!
In addition, Terra runs an adaptive dance program called Inclusion Dance, formally “Dancing With Friends”, teaching young adults and children with disabilities to move in any way they can and enjoy the magic of dance. There are several weekly dance classes as well as the performance group that meets weekly. This unique group puts together fun and inspirational routines that are performed at national dance events here in Colorado, even traveling to Las Vegas to audition for America’s Got Talent!
There are donation and volunteer opportunities to support this special group if you are looking for ways to join in.
When Terra isn’t teaching dance she is running her event planning business “Valora Events”. She specializes in Weddings, Fundraisers, and Dance Events. She truly enjoys helping people create magical moments and memories by bringing their ideas to life.
