Michael Kendrick has been dancing since before he could get away with wearing a mustache to sneak into PG-13 movies. Just 9 years old when he fell in love with dance, Kendrick was already teaching the art form at age 14. His passion remained with him as he served as an infantry paratrooper in the US Army, where he was cast as Sonny LaTierre in a national production of Grease. After working for Fred Astaire Dance Studios for more than a decade, Kendrick decided to draw on his experience dancing and his certification in aerobics instruction to helm One Rhythm Dance. As the owner, he curates workshops and classes focused on sharing ballroom dancing with anyone inspired to learn.
