Michael Scoggins firmly believes that anyone—young, old, nimble, or clumsy—can become a great dancer. A talented dancer himself, Michael has spent more than 20 years on stages across the globe, performing in professional theaters, on television, and before the Japanese royal family. Today, he pulls from his years of training and experience to captain his own private dance studio, where he joins with a staff of fellow professional dancers to lead students of all abilities in a variety of partner-based dances. On the dance floors of local athletic clubs, community centers, and opera houses, instructors guide intimate groups of no more than five couples through swing dances, waltzes, and tangos. The teachers also conduct dance lessons for special events, including weddings, university parent nights, and musical civil-war reenactments.
