About Me

Dance time with Monika


Monika Crissler-Vise – Ballroom Dance Instructor


I started training and teaching in 1993 with former Professional Competitors and Studio owners Nick and Toni Reavis and the Late United States Independent Dance Council (USIDC) Judge Tina Rae. My vast training also includes personal Coaching’s with US Latin Champion Rosendo Fumero and National Ballroom Champion John Swick.

My professional partnership with Wesley Crocker formed in 1996 and we have been performing together in many Exhibition dances and Showcases, both in American and International style as well as in Theater Arts and also competed together.

Now, with over 25 years of experience, I continue, alongside with my partner Wesley, at Shuffles & Ballet II in Little Rock as well as at the Barrett Center in Hot Springs, teaching Beginners through Advanced Students, choreographing Showcase numbers for my competitive oriented students as well as specializing in Wedding Dance Choreography.

We are also available for Exhibition performances and Show Dances at your next Holiday Event or any other Special Event.


It is always my goal to provide my students with quality instructions in a harmonic and relaxed environment, to meet their needs, so that they can enjoy their dancing experience.
