Our community is about expression. Dance is just the vehicle.
One of Adam's first star moments was on the British television show 'Strictly Dance Fever' – where he was awarded a scholarship to attend the prestigious 'London Studio Center' where he gained his honours degree in Theater Dance. After touring with the studio's jazz company in the UK and working for Disney's 'High School Musical' in Europe, he continued to train in ballroom dancing. Adam was on the 'Encore' Latin formation team and placed first at Blackpool at Nationals. The team then went on to compete at the world championships in Germany that same year. His resume also includes assistant choreographer for Dreamworks, and dance captain for both Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Carnival Cruise Lines.
With Adam's breadth of skill and multidisciplinary approach to ballroom dance, he has an unique perspective on how to teach and make you the best dancer you can be.
