Richard walked into his first ballroom studio in Chicago nine years ago and has not looked back. After four years as a serious student, Richard successfully completed a dance-teacher training program in 2011. He is knowledgeable in the American Smooth, Rhythm, and Nightclub styles.
His personal philosophy is that dancing is for everyone and has many incredible benefits; benefits that he himself has experienced many times over. Richard is a natural educator with an incredible love and knowledge of partnered dancing and is excited to share both with you.
