From Panama City, Florida, Jonathan started his ballroom venture as a part of a studio franchise in 2007. He is the first one to admit how ballroom dancing has helped him grow and become a better person. He finds teaching to be a very rewardable experience because he enjoys seeing how dancing touches people’s lives. He loves the way people change as they develop new dance skills and helping people is one of the biggest reasons he loves teaching.
Jonathan has trained with many of the country’s top coaches and dancing stars such as Tony Dovolani, Lacey Schwimmer, Tristan McManus, Tommie, and Joe Trovato, Luann Pullium and Alec Mazo. Developed choreography for local theater presentations such as Man of La Mancha and was a featured dancer in David Winters’ movie production, East Side Story.
