About Charles Ogar

Charles Ogar is fully addicted and in love with dance!! He is a full-time, professional Kizomba instructor, choreographer, and dancepreneur (an entrepreneur in the dance world). He travels all over the world spreading Neo Kizomba. He always strives to teach and dance with his heart and let his light shine through his dance to inspire others to do the same.

His specialty is kizomba, although he has been dancing salsa and bachata since May 2015.

He got his first taste of dance at the age of 8 in elementary through a program called "Believe In Me". In elementary and middle school he also played the flute, piano, and alto saxophone which gave him a keen sense of rhythm and musicality. He first learned the basic steps for salsa in his first of year of college. He soon found himself taking weekly classes and going out social dancing religiously. He quickly gained a strong foot in the basics and began adding his own energetic, style and flavor. From there, he expanded his dancing to bachata, punta, samba, cha cha, salsa on2, a bit of cuban salsa, and now Kizomba. He truly loves how Kizomba uniquely embodies connection between the ground, your partner, and the music.
