Hi, my name is David, I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you! A little about me a U.S Navy Veteran and UNCW Alumni (Go Seahawks)! My friends who have known me through the years know me as the guy who can’t stop dancing. Either land, sea, and air if there was (or wasn’t) music I was dancing. Even now as I type this I’m blasting music practicing what I know!

 

Dancing has been a part of my life since I can remember. My first lesson was back in 6th grade. The school was having Salsa lessons and my mom signed me up. Now at that time I hated that she entered me into those lessons. Coming from a Puerto Rican family I figured I knew all I needed to know of salsa, so I was upset that I had to go. Soon I would figure out that I knew nothing of the dance and I ended up learning the foundation that I still use to this day to expand my skills.

 

 I love all forms of dance but some of my favorites have got to be Salsa, Bachata, and the Cha- Cha!

 

I just want to take this space to thank MaryAnn for this opportunity. She is an incredible woman who Is so passionate about dance! I could not find myself a better mentor and friend. I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity to spread the joy of dance! I can’t describe what dance has done for life, not to sound sad but I don’t believe I’d still be here if it wasn’t for dance. Instead of drowning sorrows in what everyone else was doing, I chose to dance away all my worries. I just hope that I’m able to inspire you all with the power of dancing.

Hi! I'm Jeremy, a native of Thomasville, NC, and I've been dancing in the social scene since 2013. Most of my dance time is dedicated to Swing and Lindy Hop, with some splashes of Balboa, Charleston, and a few other partner dances.

 

Otherwise, I spend some time playing piano and finding a dance or two to swing out to every month. I'd love to chat about dance and help you on your dancing journey!

Hi! I am Luba! I came to the US 40 years ago from Eastern Europe and have been dancing in a competitive International Ballroom for 10 years. I’ve lived in 3 different states but New York has a special place for me in my heart. I lived and worked there for 35 years. I was an International  competitive ballroom dancer where I competed mostly in a professional-amateur category and later on switched to an amateur-amateur category with my dance partner. Then I ended up having an injury and it stopped my competitive dancing. I missed it a great deal! I started taking group classes in various styles of dancing - Smooth and Rhythm. I fell in love with the Latin style of dancing, Salsa and Rumba, even though these dance styles are so different in their performances, the simplicity of both and the sensuality of each brings the dancers to a different level of learning phases. Most of my dance styles are dedicated to Smooth (Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Quick Step), East Coast Swing (some Balboa) and various Latin dances like Salsa, Bachata and Merengue. 

 

Other than that, I volunteer at Reynolda Gardens every week that brings the nature and the beauty of the Garden into my soul. I meet with like minded people to discuss financial peace and how to get rid of debt, yoga and my own gardening ventures. 

 

I’d love to talk about your dancing goals and help you in your dancing journey!
