Aside from their own accomplishments, their students have also achieved great success; winning National titles at the United States Dance Championships in 2010 and 2011.

After performing in musical theater for a few years, Jim was introduced to the world of ballroom and Latin dancing. He has been a Certified Professional Ballroom and Latin Dance Instructor since 1998 and offers instruction in American Rhythm and Smooth, International Latin and Standard, and the social and club dances, which include Salsa, Merengue, West-Coast Swing, Hustle and Night-Club Two Step.

Tania began dancing and performing at a very young age. Her first experience with dance was at the age of 6 when she began training in classical Persian dance under the direction of top Iranian instructor Khordadian in Los Angeles. Shortly there after, she began her training in figure skating. She was a competitive skater until she discovered Ballroom and Latin dancing in 2005. She completely fell in love with it and changed her focus. She offers instruction in the American Rhythm and Smooth styles, International Latin, and the night-club dances which include Salsa, Merengue, West-Coast Swing, Hustle and Night-Club Two Step. Tania also specializes in Belly dancing.

Jim and Tania have perfected a very successful style of instruction, and equally enjoy working with students who wish to learn to social dance as well as students who are driven to competition success.
