He designed "Ballroom By Request" as a unique place where people can come and learn how to do all those great dances they see on "Dancing with the Stars," at any social event/party/wedding reception where popular music is being played.

    $10 for one lesson, $15 for both lessons. Fruit, chocolate & water at no extra charge!
