Sarah’s love of dance rooted deeply at a young age in ballet and jazz classes. While in college studying business, she took her first ballroom dancing class—and was hooked. She danced for more than 10 years in American Rhythm competition, training with some of the world’s finest coaches.
With awards like winning four Open Professional American Rhythm events, winning three professional American Rhythm Rising Stars events, and obtaining numerous finalist spots in open professional events in Canada and around the United States, Sarah started dreaming of what would come next … which included teaching and opening her own club.
Teaching came naturally—Sarah’s won multiple top teacher awards, and her students have won top student awards—and after Sarah met Vlad, well, you know the rest.
When Sarah’s not in the studio:
She loves international travel and fashion—plus, she’s learning Italian. Bellisima!
When Vlad was 4, his parents dragged him into dance class. After numerous chocolate bribes to keep him going Vlad persisted, and eventually his love of dance caught up to his love of sugar—both which remain strong today.
In his 25+ years career, Vlad went from competing Professionally to becoming a Pro Instructor. He is:
• World Semi-Finalist
• 2 x Canadian National Champion
• 3 x Undefeated BC Provincial Champion
• Coach of Canadian National Champion
• Multiple Top Teacher Awards winner
When Vlad’s not in the studio:
You’ll likely find him enjoying a glass of wine, or studying for the WSET Level 3 Exam. Cheers!
Shiori moved from Japan to Canada when she was 16, and took her first dance class to meet new people—before she even spoke English! What started as a way to make new friends turned into a whirlwind love affair … with dance. She began competing, and after years of training and dedication, she became Canadian National Champion. .
Shiori loves to teach people, and is particularly great at making anyone feel comfortable on the dance floor!
When Shiori’s not in the studio:
She loves traveling and boating—and enjoying a delicious meal. (Japanese and Mexican cuisine are her favorites!)
