Susan began her professional teaching career over twenty five years ago. Initially teaching under the Fred Astaire dance studio chain and also other independent studios, Susan began her career with training from some of the top National and International coaches in the United States. She co-owned Sterba’s School of Dance from 1995 through 2002 and was sole proprietor of Dupage Dance Center from 2002-2012. She has retired from owning a studio so she can now dedicate her time to teaching her students and continue in her personal professional dance education.
She is a choreographer for shows and performances, and has also danced professionally in television commercials. Susan teaches both International and American styles of dance, and also club style dances. She teaches both social and competitive dance, specializing in coaching couples. She puts an emphasis on how use the body and breaks down how it works in dancing. She is enjoying watching her students develop into the dancers they want to be. Susan is very excited to be a part of the Vargo’s Dance team.
