Christian

From Sugar Land, TX.

I started dancing because I love both music and movement, and dancing is the combination of those two! 

 

Dance is an amazing part of my life. It's a great way to stay fit. I use it as my main source of cardio. Also, knowing how to dance means I can go out and have fun without drinking.

 

Being a dance instructor gives me the opportunity to share all of the benefits  I've gotten from

dance with students.

Carly

From Sumner, WA

I love to travel, but I am not fluent in other languages. Dance has always been a way to engage the local community and experience new cultures.

 

I incorporate many types of movement into my lifestyle, dance is the form that creates the most joy.

I always leave the dance floor feeling energetically rejuvenated.

Sophia

From South Lake Tahoe, CA

I've spent most of my adult years on the Caribbean, Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans performing in production shows on cruise ships.

 

I began dancing as a child, I think mainly to give my mother a break from my constant need for kinetic output. My love affair with dance only grew from there.

Byron

From Sacramento, CA.

I started dancing because I was quiet and shy, and wanted to be more outgoing to be more comfortable talking with girls. Every lady wants a man who can dance.

 

I love to see people have that

"ah hah!" moment when they do something they never thought

they could have.

Justin

From Guam

I started dancing because my friends encouraged me to join them at a swing dance club. We all had a blast. It was so much fun dancing and socializing.

 

Through dance I've learned a lot of lessons about relationships and interacting with people, both familiar and new.

I fell in love with dancing at an event called "Dancing Under the Stars"

at Jack London Square.

My girlfriends and I went every Friday that summer.

 

My love for musical theater and social dancing keeps me passionate for my career and living an active lifestyle. I'm so grateful.
