Andre – Dance Instructor / Manager

Is there any guy who has more Chicago Pride than Andre? Yes, it’s true… so much loyalty and pride packed into this sports enthusiast! Not only for his home state, the Bears, and the Cubs, but for Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios of Illinois, too!
Andre joined the company in May of 2006 after being a collegiate athlete in Wrestling and Cross Country. He originally went to school in Harper College with the desire to become a physical education teacher in the future. Knowing his goals, one of his friends recommended him to apply for a teaching job at our studio. The rest was history.

He is now one of the best teachers this company has to offer. He has won Top Teacher in various competitions, regionally and nationally. He is a Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios Rising Star Rhythm finalist, as well as an Open Rhythm finalist.

This man has a huge passion for success and strives to be the best he can be in every aspect of teaching and dancing. He is committed to his goals and even more committed to his students’ achievements. If you want to be the best “you” you can be, Andre is your man. No doubt.

Andre currently competes with his wife, Stephanie, in the American Rhythm division and aspires to be a United States American Rhythm Champion.
