Although Misty Renfro is a native of the United States, for 18 years she was raised in the beauty of the tropics in The Republic of Panama. Much of her dance experience began with the sultry sounds and rhythms of steel drums and Latin music. Misty has always remained a raw dance talent with a passion for the art. Although formal training was not a pursuit of hers until she reached her 20’s, she successfully trained herself in different forms of free-style dance. Once she moved permanently to the United States, these skills allowed her many opportunities as a professional free style dancer within major clubs in the Tampa Bay area.
Her love for Ballroom dance began in her late 20’s when she became a full-time professional within the industry. She experienced massive success with her professional competitions as well as her Pro-Am competitions including regional victories and national platform finishes. However, her greatest passion and biggest success in dance has not been about herself. She will explain to you, with pride that her greatest achievements have been learning to instruct all forms of students successfully. She believes the most amazing part of dance is its ability to infuse confidence and self-awareness into the dancer. Misty also believes what a great gift it is to teach someone to become confident with themselves and learn to be comfortable in their own skin!
Misty is now practicing the art of dance instruction part-time and has become a beloved part of The Bachtel Realty Group of Greenville, SC. She loves her newest roll in life as “The Dancing Realtor”!
