Alberto Cortes – Dance Director

Alberto originates from warm and sunny southern Spain where he began dancing at the age of 10. His background consists of International Latin, Ballroom and Musical Theater. Alberto boasts countless awards in professional dance competitions and show dance performances from his early years in Spain.

Recently, alongside his former partner Jessa Mae Briones, they achieved United States FADS National and World Open American Rhythm Vice-champion, Millenium Dancesport Championship and Ohio Star Ball Open American Rhythm finalist, 15 times Professional Rising Star American Rhythm Champion across the United States, World and National Fred Astaire Professional Rising Star American Rhythm Champion and the 2017 United States Professional Rising Star American Rhythm Champion.

Alberto’s philosophy is simple:

“The world of ballroom dance is full of both physical and mental benefits. A 45-minute lesson on the dance floor easily proves any student of any experience leaves sweaty, laughing and often times, a little more out of their comfort zone.

Years of competitive performances and worldwide championship experience enables me to be the link between dance and my client’s ability to enjoy thrilling, healthy and healing emotions themselves!
