A Bit About Wilson Barrera
Wilson Barrera - Owner & Founder
Wilson Barrera has over 25 years of experience as a teaching professional, performer, competitor, coach, and choreographer. His solo performances have been acclaimed worldwide by audiences and critics alike. Wilson knew when he was just 16 years old that dancing would be his life.
Born in Colombia, South America, he began to attract the attention of the dance world when he performed as lead dancer in his own Folkloric Dance Company in Miami. This led to his close association with other celebrated dancers around the world, as he became a champion participant in competitions worldwide which eventually led to Wilson as a Global Dance Champion.
Wilson came to Sarasota in 1996 and founded Ballroom DanceSport Theatre as a professional, non-profit arts organization. This group established an educational dance program in Sarasota and Venice middle high schools as a credited activity. Three years later, in 1999, Wilson opened the first Wilson’s DanceSport International, Inc. studio offering dance events, lessons and competition-level instruction in a variety of dance styles.
“I want every student to feel good, look good and discover themselves all over again,” says Wilson enthusiastically.
His high energy permeates the studio atmosphere and proves that these are not merely empty words. You can feel the joy he has for dance and he shares it with everyone who walks through the door.
One of the benefits to becoming a student at Wilsons Dance Club International is that Wilson PERSONALLY AND RIGOROUSLY TRAINS AND DEVELOPS each and every dance instructor that works at WDCI.
This fact means that our students experience the absolute highest quality instruction anywhere in the country, if not the world.
In 2011 Wilson opened Wilsons Dance Club International in Bradenton Florida...continuing WDCI's reputation as the PREMIER Ballroom Dance Studio in the Bradenton/SRQ area.
