Terry Ciotti Gallo - Founder
2021 USDF Lifetime Achievement Award
Terry has a broad and colorful history in sports, dance, and music. Starting as a theatrical choreographer, her works were seen in various media. However with a background as a competitive gymnast, she also acted as a dance instructor, choreographer, coach, and judge for international-caliber gymnastics. Terry coupled the sports world with her dance and music knowledge to help a variety of athletes in the total development of their freestyle performances. This led to the establishment of Klassic Kur in 1989.
