Meet Darren


Darren owes his introduction to dance to his parents, who dragged him to his first dance class. Before long he realized he loved dancing! His passion for dance brought him all the way from the UK to right here in Austin, where he began his teaching career. “I love to teach dance because it’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do and I genuinely get to live my dream every day.” Darren is a proficient competitor having won many titles in different dance styles. His favorite genres are Ballroom Latin and Country Western.

“Not only is Darren a great dancer, he is an excellent teacher!  He knows how to explain and show things that make sense for his students.  Darren is the best at helping his students reach their dance goals. Did I also mention how much fun he is to dance with?”
