Xander Weiss

Ballroom Dance Teacher

Being a dance teacher is awesome.  I get paid to have fun all day!  My first love was a specific type of skateboarding called long boarding.  You may be surprised, but there are a lot of parallels between dancing and skating.  However, less road-rash in ballroom dancing…at least so far!

Which dances do you love the most?

Salsa…it’s fast and free and 2 fun! I am always in a great mood when dancing Salsa.

What is the all-time best “Dance” Movie?

I don’t have a favorite.  I prefer actually dancing to watching other people dancing on film.

What is the best thing about your hometown?

It’s small.  You really can get to know everybody.

Who is your favorite dancer?

Michael Jackson.  He’s got all the moves and a sparkly glove too.

Favorite weekend binge-watch guilty pleasure?

I “accidentally” watched the entire Vampire Diaries…oops.

What do you love most about Ballroom Dancing?

Short answer…EVERYTHING!  Dancing fits perfectly with my high energy persona.

What is the most rewarding part of your career?

I love teaching.  I love coming up with different ways to relate information to all kinds of different people.
