About the Owner

With over 15 years of dance experience….

Unlike some dancers, Joel is a teacher at heart. He became a student at the age of 18. And began training for a teaching position a month later. He likes to say dancing found him. Living next door to a Ballroom Dance studio in college, the music constantly pierced through the walls until it drew him in, and was hooked from that moment on. Joel worked for that studio in Fresno, CA for 5 years, moved to Los Angeles and continued his dance career with a world-wide known dance franchise for an additional 5 years. Through that incredible journey he participated in many competitions and recitals. Helping students place well and win many awards. Choreography was in his blood from the start. He enjoys it! Whether it be for a competition, a show, or a wedding. His clients have always enjoyed their results.

Why I Teach

“The best part of teaching is seeing the growth and change in people’s lives. The “ah-ha” moments on every lesson are treats for me. After a while, I get joy from stepping back and physically noticing the progress. From students stepping on others feet, to now seeing them comfortably glide from one step to another seamlessly. I’m ready to help you begin your journey in this unforgettable world of dance.”
