Aside from hip-hop, Dan also has a great passion for Ballroom dancing. He joined the Fred Astaire Worcester family in 2007, and has been teaching and training there ever since. Alongside his dance partner Amy Toedt and fellow Fred Astaire professionals, he has competed and performed at numerous events.
Other accomplishments of Dan’s include winning a solo dance contest on the “Live with Regis and Kelly Show.” He was also chosen to dance for Jordan Knight (of NKOTB) on his “Live & Unfinished” U.S. and Canadian tours, as well as the NKOTB cruise. He has further had the opportunity to train with some of the top and most respected choreographers in the dance industry.
Dan currently teaches and incorporates his diverse knowledge and experiences of the dance industry into his classes. He continues to train and broaden his education in his dance career.
