Owner Biographies

Tina Wood and Mark Wood, Primary owners of Dance Elite Ballroom Studio, Inc.

Florentina (Tina) Wood has been involved in several successful busines ventures, including Caring Nurses of Michigan, Inc. and Caring Nurses Inc. of Las Vegas, Nevada, nationally recognized home health care agencies of which she is President and CEO. A Registered Nurse by training, Tina has a keen entrepreneurial spirit. In starting Dance Elite Ballroom Studio, she brings to this organization a wealth of knowledge and creativity. Her business experience, organizational skills, leadership and ability to put together a team of individuals that can work with unity, will allow Dance Elite Ballroom Studio to become a premier, Michigan based dance instruction studio.

Tina picked ballroom dancing as a business opportunity because she loves to dance. Her personalized license plate LV2DNZ is only a small demonstration towards her new business commitment. As a busy mother of 2 boys, a wife and businesswoman, attempting to keep everything glued together can be very stressful. "Dancing provides an outlet and becomes a stress buster" says Tina. Dance can be a competitive sport and is very popular with all age groups. It does not matter whether you are a beginner or a professional, whether you would just like to have fun or would like to compete. "Ballroom dancing provides an opportunity to personalize a sometimes welcomed change of pace, a chance to just be yourself, to relax, to be with friends, to be creative, and a chance to feel refreshed and accompanied with a delightful bonus of getting in a good aerobic workout," comments Tina.

Tina Wood has the energy and the enthusiasm to convert an idea into a sound business opportunity. Together with her son, Mark Wood, a recent Economics Major graduate from Columbia University, they will bring to the Oakland County community a high quality of American and Latin dance lessons and enjoyment.
