A self-professed Navy brat, neighbor Gary Rogers is at home meeting new people. Drawn to music since childhood, Gary achieved ASE certified mechanic status and later became a five-star professional chef before circling back to his true calling: dance instructor at Lone Star Ballroom, which he co-owns with Ann Michelle Muscato.
Gary implements career skills at the Ballroom. In addition to American-style dance classes – personal favorites are tango, waltz and fox trot – he chefs “Romantic Evening for Two” packages there, featuring a private three-course dinner with portable dance floor under the stars. “Dancing is fun and easy, with mental and physical benefits,” Gary says.
