Tresa Anderson is the mother of 6 children and 4 step-children. Most of her children and even their spouses have been talented dancers which she delights in! Her husband Wylie is also a wonderful support to her in “the dance business.” She has had over 35 years of dance teaching experience. She has a BA degree from BYU in Dance, Secondary Education, & Special Education. She has danced her entire life, starting when she was only 2 years old. During her early years of training, she specialized in ballet first and was a member of the Idaho Concert Ballet Company through her high school years. She also added other styles including jazz, lyrical, theater, tap, gymnastics, modern, contemporary & ballroom. While at BYU she was a member of the BYU Ballroom Tour Team when she toured throughout the US, Canada & Europe competing for both on the team and also individually winning national and international titles. At BYU she was also a member of the International Folk Dance Team and Modern Dance Company as well. She taught dance starting in high school and continued teaching at BYU as a student. After college, she opened her first studio, “Dance World”, in Pocatello ID which she ran for 13yrs and then re-located to Utah and started Charisma Studio which has been very successful since 1997. She has coached gymnastics, was a choreographer for musical theater, pageants, numerous stage productions, television, drill teams, competition teams, competitive ballroom couples, and jazz/lyrical solos. Tresa is very grateful that she and Charisma Studio have been warmly welcomed & integrated into this wonderful Utah community of dance and artistic expression!
