Looking at photos from competitions is such a helpful tool— it helps us to see any weak areas in our posture, form, and overall presentation. When Michael and I looked at the photos after Emerald Ball we were both so pleased! The improvements were truly notable, which is so rewarding. It also showed in his placements— he made the final round in his Gentleman’s Championship and also earned first places in his single dances. Congratulations Michael, you have earned your success and we are so proud! 🏆

Feeling so grateful that we were able to compete at the Houston Dancesport Classic this year. A huge thank you to the organizers and everyone who worked so hard to make it happen.

Of course, a big thank you also to my phenomenal student Michael who makes us look good out on the dance floor! Competition #2 is in the books and I’m thrilled with your performance. First in all single dances, first in championships, and 6th in a very competitive scholarship. A job very well done! 🏆

That feeling when... you finally reach the goal you’ve been working towards. 👏

Not even a global pandemic could prevent Michael from achieving his competitive dancing dreams. He remained committed to his dancing throughout quarantine with consistent Zoom lessons and solo practice, and was back in the studio as soon as we reopened. It was such a joy to finally see the work come to fruition and step onto the competition floor! There is really no other feeling quite like it. ⚡️

Thank you, Michael for trusting us to guide you on this journey! 💫

When the pandemic upended their original wedding plans, this awesome couple knew they wanted a fun focal point for their Zoom reception. 🎉

They chose to dance to the iconic classic “Time of my Life” from Dirty Dancing, but we put their own unique twist on it! They practiced together daily and the results show — amazing job you two. Congrats Chante and Joe! We had so much fun working with you, and all the very best in your future together!
