Based in Vancouver Canada, Dave and Claudia, regularly teach various styles of dance and host regular country dance events. Known for their good-humored and fun teaching style they enjoy sharing the love of dancing with their students.

Dave began dancing in 1986 and competed on the ballroom circuit, placing 1st as Western Canadian Champion in 1995. Since then, he has expanded his dance repertoire to include dances such as salsa, west coast swing and country.

Claudia began dancing in 2006 as part of the Salsa Caliente performance team, performing in Puerto Rico and various US locations. Since then, she has gone on to compete in ballroom, west coast swing and country.

Together Dave and Claudia compete in the UCWDC circuit, where they placed 1st in Division 2. They are looking forward to many more years of dancing!
