Sidney B. Grant (aka Doctor Dance!) has enjoyed a ballroom and latin dance career spanning over two decades of dedication to the art of social dancing, specializing in Argentine Tango. After capturing the Novice Professional title at the Fred Astaire Championships in Atlantic City in 1990, Grant quickly realized that social – not competitive – dance was his calling. Teaching young and old alike in a variety of settings (studios, schools and senior centers, as well as corporate and private events) Sid is in constant demand for his unique instruction and performance. His passion for partner dancing has enabled him to build a worldwide clientele.
Sid is the director and founder of Ballroom Basix. The Ballroom Basix website is:www.ballroombasix.com
Vanja is an internationally recognized teacher, performer and DJ, who has worked in Europe and the United States. She has been dancing since she was 9 years old, starting with folk dances and competition ballroom and latin. In 2000 she discovered and immersed herself in Argentine tango. Within a year, she was also taking classes as a leader. With her extensive dance background, natural talent, and quickly developing skill, she started teaching in 2002. Over the years, Vanja has continued to hone her skills in the various tango styles - salon, stage, milonguero and nuevo - because she sees the beauty in each of them and believes that each of those styles may suit different dancers. Vanja's students value her for her keen eye, her detailed and clear instruction, and her patience and kindness. More info, conatct, www.vanjatango.com or FB page:www.facebook.com/FindTheVanja
