Cori got hooked on ballroom dancing by taking lessons with her dad in highschool, nearly 20 years ago. She has performed with the UC San Diego Dance Team (where she met her husband John Ourant) and taught for the UB Ballroom Dance Club in Buffalo, New York. She considers herself a social dancer who knows how to turn on the style at performance time. At the Evergreen, she promotes ballroom dancing with beginning and continuing level classes, and hosts a formal Ball each Spring. Cori is also the manager of the Evergreen Ballroom.
