About Debbie Wright
Why did I open a ballroom dance studio?
It has been a long journey to get to this moment. As a child, I always loved music and dancing—it was in my heart and soul. From cheerleader to aerobics instructor, I was able to enjoy the passion inside me.
Several years into my marriage, I took weekly private dance lessons with my husband—it was our date night. Every Monday evening, I connected with my husband and was able to share my passion for dance and movement.
The Freedom of Dance
It wasn’t until tragedy struck our family that I discovered the true gift and power of dance. When my 13-year-old daughter was diagnosed with cancer, I found a healthy release and freedom in dance. I experienced the many benefits of dance during this dark time of my life.
It’s never too late.
After raising three children, I decided it was time for me to explore my curiosity for dance. At age 45, I started to take private lessons and within a few months began competing. I had a passion and desire to learn even more.
I compete several times a year and have traveled all over the world. Ballroom dance is a discipline that can be learned at any age. I started at the beginner level in my age group. I worked my way up the medal system from bronze to silver to gold, and now open.
Experiencing the benefits of dance—physical, emotional, mental and spiritual—I realized that I wanted to share my love of dance and its many rewards with the Eugene community. It’s why I decided to open Eugene’s premier ballroom studio. I invite you and everyone to visit the Vault and dance!
