McOmber, Barbara
Barbara McOmber joined American Heritage School in 2012 as the Ballroom Dance Instructor. Barbara is a Brigham Young University graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Home and Family Living Studies. While attending BYU, she was on the Ballroom Tour team, where she was able to spread her love of dance and the gospel while touring the South Pacific, including Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, and Hawaii. She and her dance partner competed in the National Dancesport competitions for years. It was at BYU where Barbara met her husband Arthur. She said, “He swept me off my feet!” After leaving Utah, they lived in Southern California where Art worked for the FBI and they raised four wonderful children. In 2005, they moved to Cedar Hills, Utah where Barbara began teaching Elementary Ballroom at several local schools. Barbara has choreographed, costumed, and produced annual ballroom concerts since 2005. Her competition teams have reached the gold level multiple times. After having two of her children attend American Heritage, she is thrilled to be a part of the American Heritage faculty and teach such outstanding students.
